It's about as far west as one can get on our local body of water...
Just above the great estuary...on its' feeder creek,
Are the ruins of an ancient citadel,
Once populated by the water clan...
They traded goods,
With a nomadic clan of the plains,
Until...
The plains clan,
Wounded their Knees,
And could no longer make the pilgrimage...

In the jewelry market...
And the waterway...
An artery...

Rather...

Wow. Impressive.
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

Cheers, friend. In search of good marks and good bread- a very similar path. And back in the dreams of my youth.

More for the season ahead. :cool

Damn. I had to stop 10 lines in because I realized that I was going to need to settle into this one. Let me break out the green and the brown and try that one again after the kids go to bed.
