Glimpses of Green and Red
These are a couple of shots from the Moon-Diggs area well before fall started her annual mission to minimize all of summer's vibrant green colors. The green fields and red structures complement each other well.
Currently our soybean fields are yellow and brown mixed with the occasional hint of lackluster green; it won't be too long before they're harvested.
Of course "harvest" makes me think of Thanksgiving and the colors green and red make me think of Christmas. After the week I've just barely survived, the prospect of the impending holidays, which will be here in half a blink of an eye, makes me want to escape to Bora Bora immediately, never to return again.
(Nothing against Mathews, in fact I prefer to live here. But it's all the reponsibilities and obligations I feel the urge to leave behind.)
Since I don't have a passport, I'll just put my head down and plow ahead, like a combine going through the soybean fields.
Today, though, I hope to do a whole lot of nothing. Doing nothing is very underrated, and I need to reacquaint myself with the notion.
What will you be doing today or what did you do this weekend?
