This is my mountain and I' m climbing it

Hot wind blowing from the south, the heat index is at 105 degrees Fahrenheit in the fair city of Dallas, Texas. Have you ever stuck your head in the oven to see if the roast is ready.?It is that hot but no roast at sight. I decided to made some fresh salmon with pink mashed potatoes (just add a small amount of beets until it takes the exact hue of pink you desire.) It's one of those times when you have 7 books you want to read and cannot make your mind which one to read first. It is one of those times when you change your mind every other second. I have too much time on my hands, I guess. Something I would..oops the dog is throwing up, I must go.

OK, I'm back, the salmon is almost ready, I have yet to clean the rug with Pretzel's "return of food." But I must finish this brief post with a final thought, rather a quote from an unknown person, at least to me: If the mountain was smooth you couldn't climb it. So we all need friction, traction, good hiking boots, roughness and whole lotta faith if we going to get from here to there. I feel anxious, it is no use denying it. But I have chosen my path, up the mountain. I have never thought of myself conventional or even rational to tell the truth. But it is all about YOUR TRUTH, the one I discovered, the one that was revealed to me while I wandered through life. Yes, I live in the steep mountain. Sometimes I just get tired of the difficult climb, but the view from here is breathtaking, its majestic, glorious and full of Love.

My heart stopped for a second reading about the 105 degree heat and then reminding myself that not everyone is freezing in July, and that high temps are normal.

And then enjoyed picturing your pink mashed potatoes with a smile and thinking that even in the midst of your travails, even when you are down, you never seem to be without hope.

I was in the Castro today and thought of you.

"If the mountain was smooth you couldn't climb it." I love that.

Put on those fabulous boots, you know, the ones in your header, and let's climb that mountain!

It was 82 up here today and I thought it was hot. :P

Beautiful Pin, The weather sounds like what we approximate in August in the South. We get the muggy feel with it.

I hear you are committed to climbing the mountain!

Such marvelous thoughts! Life is more about the journey and not all about destination.

People pick destinations and flounder again and again and turn into unhappy wanderers that go nowhere and don't appreciate their journeys.
