|are peaks by necessity few and far
between? a mountain range, a range of
emotion--what's the difference? who
wouldn't rather look at the rockies jagged
in the distance than hold a ruler to a level
horizon? fortunately, there's no need
to choose, especially on the water where the
'scape changes with every breath
of wind, surge of tide, and pull of current. but
i'm overstating all of this...
today the lake was placid, glassy, as i took the
boat out for this
year's maiden voyage with kim and katie, a
couple i met via
craigslist to take the helm of gray goose while
barely a breeze, just enough to billow the sails
bit as we cruised by leschi
at walking speed. the
forecast was for 46℉ but it felt warmer in the
sun and there was no place i'd rather
have been as i started a fast (followed
by intense laxative cleanse) for My
First Colonoscopy™ tomorrow.
ah, yes, peaks and valleys!
