Graywulff Loc: Cortez,Co.
 
As fishermen and women we all experience those times when we are either on the water or near it and the solitude of nature becomes so quiet we can hear it. We feel the breeze, smell the water and the grasses and trees, see the birds and insects and animals, and often we can feel it and experience so personally that we become a part of it. For many if not most of us it is why our pursuit is so restorative. We don't HAVE to do anything or be anywhere we can just Be. As I get older it is a state that carries over into the rest of my life and for me it is a good thing. It has been a hard lesson learned but well worth it. Plumbob asked me write this so for what it's worth here it is...... My quote and my wish for all, "May you LIVE all the days of your life!" Jonathan Swift

One with nature and Fishing and Hunting is always my way to be in synch with it. I agree Wolfy.

It always amazes me as to what you can see, smell and hear when you let everything else go and just be.
Thanks for sharing!

" Just to Be " Go Thread Wulffy.

Don't know about others but your words briefly put me from this desk to sitting on the yak in my mind.

Reminds me of those school days gazing out the window with yada yada yada in the back ground. Then that dang eraser on the side of my head would bring me right back.

If I'm not mistaken, did you not state that you attended a parochial grade school ? You had nuns? Then you should identify/associate with the following -

Sixth grade - long, narrow classroom
with only four rows of eight desks each, facing long end of room with blackboard on right side of room !
English teacher (nun) is trying to
teach a lesson at the blackboard,
but has to repeatedly tell one
student (sitting 20 ft. away - first
seat/first row), to quiet down and
pay attention !

After giving the second warning without success (he's still yakking away), she turns abruptly, calls his name to get his attention and
throws the chalk eraser - it catches him right across the face, leaving
him with a set of yellow 'raccoon
eyes' ! Man, we laughed over that
shot for days afterward !

That 'girl' had quite the arm - not
really all that surprising, as I'm sure more than a few of them were fairly athletic in their school years (a
couple of them even played ball) ! They sure needed all the patience
and endurance they could muster
to deal with OUR crew !

(Think Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray movie -
"We're No Angels" !)

Very nicely put, Wulf. Envisioned myself at the end of the pier with line in the water...living.
