… on my way down to Phoenix this morning I was reminded of a quote of Max Ehrmann’s that I frequently use … “The green of all the fields is mine …” and as I looked at the beauty of the landscape on both sides of the freeway it just created a warm fuzzy feeling because it is so true … I may not own it, but as I pass through, it is mine to gaze at and appreciate the beauty of everything around me as I traveled through hundreds of thousands of acres of incredible landscape on the drive to Phoenix. The same with the stars at night and the wind blowing through my hair this afternoon as One and I sat on the deck enjoying the blow out from thunderstorms in the area. I’ll end with the quote again tonight.

… and attack is launched … I got this shot over the weekend of one of my favorite predators launching an attack on a Gambel’s quail. Check those razor sharp talons out. Such is grocery shopping in the natural world, no Basha’s or Safeway’s for wildlife, each individual is responsible for providing for their own needs. It is kinda like that amongst our species, but we do have a lot of safety nets … still the goal is for each to succeed in a manner that enables each to provide for themselves. The division of labor we have developed over the millennia has enable us to make progress in supporting an ever increasing population, but along the way I think that many of us would be unable to provide for ourselves and family if the system broke down … too many of us have distanced ourselves from the basics of survival … oh well … no current or apparent threat to the availability of In N Out burgers, so the future is looking pretty good!.
