So that's what that is...

Some time ago I noticed this unusual "rock" delineating a trail in the park. This concrete-in-a-bag "rock." And wondered what it could have been made for. When a neighbor pointed out a damaged spot in one of the campsite shelters where a careless Rv bumped it I had one of those Aha! moments - it's a fake adobe brick - used to build a fake adobe shelter, plastered with fake adobe plaster. Of course.

Growing up... it never stops

I am enjoying finally growing up, but guess what, boys and girls? It NEVER STOPS!!! For the record, there is no point where everything is "solved" and fine and enlightened and fixed in perpetual harmony and light. Oh, for a while, certainly. For years at a time, even. But soon you reach the next divide, hoho, and then it's grow or die a living death. The lucky ones keep struggling and discovering, challenging themselves, no matter how old they are. Don't believe anything else. NONE OF THIS IS LIKE IT SEEMS.
