The imminent rise in the price of gas reminds me of great drives I took in the southern California mountains north of Los Angeles. I love the "elfin forest" and the inland valleys that are almost desert--but not quite. I had my Geo Metro then--3 cylinders, no pick-up, little space, anything but glamorous. Yet I loved that car. I'd love to rent a KIA Rio some weekend and drive to all the obscure Angeles National Forest places I love. Familiarity does not always breed contempt.
I hope tomorrow will be a day of fishing, hiking, wildlife, record stores and perhaps even frozen yogurt. I like the people I've met through my weblog every bit as much as a cup of pumpkin frozen yogurt, sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs. The closest thing to a resolution I made this year was to try to post here more nearly daily, just as in the old days. This I find a satisfying thing to do.
My weakness today was Girl Scout thin mint cookies. My strength was efficiency in the face of paperwork. I am going to research vacation locales, as I need a break this Spring or Summer.
If I were to study an academic subject, I'd choose Peace Studies.
