I posted this image on facebook a few days back. I thought it was a pretty humorous critique of our consumption culture. But if the truth be known, I knew all the brands, but couldn't tell you the name of one of the leaves. It kinda hurt.
I've fantasized for years about living more of my life in the outdoors. Michele has been pretty patient and supportive in my desire to get a cabin in the middle of nowhere so I would have an escape. We came the closest to actually doing something this year when a friend let us know that a place was available in Taos, NM. We didn't pull the trigger.
I bought a tent a year ago. I have not used it once. I think it's time. I'm going to learn the names of all those leaves. Who wants to go with?
