Share a Story - Change the World

It's a fairly straightforward thing to tell a story. You open your mouth, and if you're not tongue-tied, out it comes in one way or another.

However, it's quite a different thing to cycle across Continental America on a flimsy looking contraption that in a Mary Poppins film would take off in a good breeze, and still tell stories. Especially when you're filled with so much novel imagery of America, having expended so many BTU's.

So, Layne, congratulations on your Crazy Guy on a Bike adventure this past summer, with your beautiful family in tow,no less.

And still, having lived through all that, you're still compos mentis.

Compos mentis? I've got you snowed, Odds.

Just stumbled on your post, mi amigo. I'm itching for a replay of our midnight philosophizing, especially in light of today's foray into the holy writ, where I discovered this gem:

"And out of the ground made I, the Lord God, to grow every tree, naturally, that is pleasant to the sight of man; and man could behold it. And it became also a living soul. For it was spiritual in the day that I created it; for it remaineth in the sphere in which I, God, created it"

So there you go! Trees are living souls, a piece of theology I hadn't before considered until your question.

Best to your lovely family.

Layne
