In The Woods at Clear Creek Metro Park for SkyWatch


     Today’s SKYWATCH is brought to you by the color BLUE.. Yesterday, I made a short road trip to Clear Creek Metro Park and the Thomas Cabin about twenty minutes S.E. of Lancaster,Ohio. The weather was great and for the most part the sky was a wonderful BLUE. Blue is calming. It can be strong and steadfast or light and friendly. Almost everyone likes some shade of the color blue.

So for today I’ll change the perspective. I love to take a bag lunch to the woods lay on the ground and watch the sky/woods and listen to the silence of the woods. This is some of what I saw. 

“There's something about the woods.
All alone surrounded by God's magic.
Peace and quiet in my solitaire moods.
No worries, people or events so tragic.”

framed1Crisp, cool air in my lungs.
The whisper of forest breeze.
A break from climbing life's rungs.
A special time on my memory to freeze.”


“A paradise of contentment,
to restore my soul’s energy.
No worry about advancement.
Basking in nature's sweet synergy. “


“No more of life's fast frame.
Back in control of my time.
Each day not more of the same.
Money no issue I don't need a dime.”


“There's something about the woods.
Only here can real peace be found.
Not a crowded neighborhood,
where all is one busy loud sound.”


“Nothing can compare to star lit canopy.
A hot steaming cup of campers tea.
The preservation of my sanity.
I escape from life's endless sea.”

Thanks to Larry Matthews for these fine words

Great Fall pictures of Clear Creek Joe! Your Golf Jack O Lantern is so cute. LOL!
Those sprinkles of rain and wind are taking down all of the pretty leaves here today.You can't even tell we mowed them all up yesterday.
Wouldn't Linda love one of the big bears on my posting?

Trees represent life. This is a true story,

Thirty years ago, some idiots imported some big cats, ie lions to Malaysia to have their safari. Some bigger idiots cut down most of the trees because they thought Africa is all dessert.

By the time I visited the Safari, I was crying for the cats, they were hurdling at the base of a couple of trees. You could see they were dehyrated.

After a few years, the lions were dead.

Your cartoon reminds me of that.
