Checking In

I’ve been enjoying my time away from the computer. Thanks to Nevada Jack for watching over the party and for all who wished Murf a happy birthday. I won’t really be back in the saddle, so to speak, till next Wednesday. After then, I’ll try to get around and catch up on what’s happening in your life. Till then, know that I’m enjoying a beautiful place without cell phone coverage. It can’t get much pretty than that! Here are a few shots which remind me of how water can have a calming and healing affect upon us. As for my location, I’m not far from “Cold Mountain,” which you may remember is also the setting for a novel and a movie, in a truly beautiful part of North Carolina.


  1. Wow Sage, truly breathtaking photographs. The second one, of the relatively gentle rapids is beyond magical. Seems like you're having a beautiful time in a very beautiful place.

  2. v stole the words right out of my mouth - breathtaking is the only way to describe these photos . . .

    and when you return, I hope you will take a minute to read my review of the Ballad of the Flim Flam Man here

  3. Beautiful make me want to get the heck out of nowhereville PA and head to the water.

    Miss ya!

  4. Superb photos! The top one is really magical and other-worldly!

  5. The pictures are more enjoyable than the movie was!

  6. That looks much cooler (in temperature, but maybe the other kind too) than it does in the upstate of SC right now. Hope you are having an awesome time!


    Enjoy the time Sage! RELAX!

  8. Here I fry in well..almost hell!
    Next weekend I am going out of this hell hole for 6 days..

    Those pictures did not help me cool down!

    But they are great. Have a good time.

  9. This is gorgeous! Wish I and my fiancée were there with you. :)

  10. One of the few fiction books I have tried to read in the last few years and I couldn't get into it. So I was a dumbass and rented the movie. Almost committed suicide over that mistake. Like Murf said, the pictures were a lot better than either of those two.

  11. Ed - Thanks for saving me the time of reading the book in hopes it was better than the movie.

    A study of Sun Rays (Crespuscular)

    Running to find the end of the rainbow.

    Running to find that shaft glory--to be bathed in light.

    Bearing the soul to the divine.

    Seeking rest, surcease and cleansing all at once.

    Faith like a waterfall--full, abundant and never ceasing.

    Faith like a dream.

    Steadfast like a rock among the rapids.

    Quickly before the moment has passed

    Look into the water and see the gathering malestrom in the deep.

    Faith like a million droplets in a summer storm.

    Take delight in the rain.

    Move and have your being in it.

    "Be still and know that I am God."
