On my Ravine

There is a creek, with a ravine, near my father's house that suffered the unfortunate fate of sublimating its nature in my mind. It went from a dark, mysterious, scary place (encouraged fully by the fears my mother put in me) that was to be avoided, to a kiddie place that held no wonder (encouraged by my friends) that was easily surpassed by real wilderness and camping. It was not until much later, until my adult life, that it finally settled back to where it never was (but always should have been) in my mind: a place of beautiful nature, close at hand, and with many nooks, crannies, and streams to explore.

Walking around now, the memories flood; those that happened, those that should have, and those that will.

This is a week for remembering.
