Island Park On The Fox River

A girl in a hammock in the sunshine.
Near a bicycle-built-for-two.
Twin trees a bulwark to earthly change,
Summer sunshine casts a speckled hue.

Greenery I long for, especially as now it will pass.
Autumn with its golden foliage,
God, I'd give my left nut if summer would last.


Mount Monadnock x 6000

A complete website with information above. I own and read the book. I'd like to hike the Pumpelly Trail someday.

A legend of the mountain:

Dream A Little Dream

A talented videographer made a lovely Hawaiian video of Eddie Vedder's "manly" version of Dream A Little Dream, my favorite ukulele song. Lovely. I share it here.


The Bag From American Beauty

"It was one of those days, when it's a minute away from snowing, and there's this electricity in the air. You can almost hear it, right? And this bag was just dancing with me, like a little kid begging me to play with it, for fifteen minutes. That's the day I realized there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know, but it helps me remember. I need to remember. Sometimes there is so much... beauty... in the world, I feel like I can't take it, and my heart is just going to cave in."


Love According To Holden

I was half in love with her by the time we sat down. That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they're not much to look at, or even if they're sort of stupid, you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. Jesus Christ. They can drive you crazy. They really can. ~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, Chapter 10
