Something to so with my time for me…..

Ok so I have found some things that I can do with my time that is for me, I have volunteered at the local parks and recreation department, I will be a trail ranger on Monday s and Wednesday s from 9am till noon and I will also be a Land Stewardship on Monday s also and on the first Saturday of every month will be a project day to fix things replant or what is needed, so I think that is cool I will learn about the local flora and fauna.

But I think the God and Goddess are conspiring against me on going camping on my own for the next 4 days, yep you guessed it the weather is going to suck, now I don’t mind riding out a storm in a tent but the only way I got to cook is on an open fire, can’t very well do that if it is raining, right? So here is the forecast for the next 4 days, Thursday beautiful, Friday 55% chance of rain, not really that big of a deal, Saturday 70% chance of rain little worse but I can be hopeful, Sunday back down to a 35% chance of rain. So here is my dilemma do I chance it and go, or do I sit around here and stare at these same four walls for the next four days? I am thinking that I will take the chance I can take a good book and sit in the tent and listen to the rain and storms and when it isn’t raining I can hike the shorter trails and take pictures. Let me know what you think I will be around for at least another 30 minutes or so just piddling around.

With much gratitude and devotion,

Dan (make the rain go away) Kline

PS, I could also sit around and Dungeons and Dragons online the whole weekend too. But I would rather be out in the middle of the woods.

PSS. God and Goddess please hold back the rains to allow me some time to myself, I know what I am asking might be selfish, but I could really use some time to just be me and sit and think and get my mind back in order. Amen.

Still here for now…..

So my camping trip has been postponed till after the first of the month, and I am ok with that but that did not stop me from doing a little hiking yesterday and I would like to share some of the images that I captured with you on my  mile hike. Now these images are not real good but the subject matter caught my eye and they are quit random, so please keep an open mind. Imagine this though, this park has over 4000 acres right at the edge of a large city of over 1.5 million people and there is never anyone using it, i find that to be amazing.

I have to ask, will the anger ever really go away, I have found that in the last several days that I am getting angry again for no apparent reason, snapping at the others and just in general agitated in. well in know one thing that is making me upset and that is our Sleep Number bed is not doing what it supposed to do and they upgraded the pump or are going to and the upgraded our pillow top also so we will see if that helps.

With much gratitude and devotion,

Dan Kline

This little fellow or girl? Was not scared of me one bit.

not to clear but it is a dragonfly, wonder why they call them that?

Now this really caught my eye if you can see it the gray pine cone looks like a open flower.

Dragonfly

Dragonfly

I took this first in color but i thought it would look better if it seemed like and old fashioned picture.

The only wildlife i could catch the elusive dragonfly.

You know eventually I am going to have to see what is at the top of this trail, but not today, lol.

Don’t know if this is a berry of a flower, but a rather large water snake was camping out near it so I snapped the pic and left him well enough alone.

Unplugged…..

On Sunday I will be unplugged for as long as my food holds out, I will see all of you on the flip side, hopefully more calm and relaxed.

The War wages on each day a battle we can win…..

inch by inch, foot by foot we will win the battle put before us!!!!!

Is it an expression of who we are these words that we write, some subconscious push to put down our feelings and emotion, nay our very own internal struggles, I say yes for we cry upon the heavens to ease our burdens to not hurt us so. Yet the pain and the fear and the depression still come to us all. We all grieve for ourselves in different ways, some stay in bed all day the physical pain of depression just too unbearable to allow us to move, and yet others cut themselves just to show they are still in charge of themselves, other hurt themselves in different and various ways unknown to us. Other try to take their very own lives by different methods, pills, cutting, jumping  and biting a bullet we all think of these things, usually on a daily basis and we are very aware of it, it stalks our minds like a beast in the dark waiting for its chance to pounce and devour us. Yet here we are still, going from one day to the next with our struggle never really showing on the outside, we know it will get us down eventually, it will wear us out, make us fatigued, that’s when we need to be our strongest, be the bully to our fears, never allow it to get a hold of us and consume our very being. You see we are strong, stronger emotionally and mentally than just your average Joe on the street, oh what I wouldn’t give to let them walk an hour in our shoes just to show them what we deal with, but I can’t you see for if they walk an hour in my shoes then there will be another out there like me. So we struggle, we battle with and in of ourselves, it is a never ending struggle but at the end of the day when I am still alive and still with my family I can call the battle won, now that is only the battle, the war isn’t over by a long shot.

With much gratitude and devotion,

Dan Kline
