The sweet smell.....of cow poop.. Horse poop, etc.

What makes you tick? Poopie Caca....or specifically, the sweet smell of the barn or the rodeo grounds etc.. So here I am sitting by the river. Sunny. Warm. Watching tanned, toned people floating down in kayaks, inner tubes, whatever. And I am completely happy. Of course I do have a gin and tonic in my hand, and I have not imbibed in weeks. But as I walk home, I smell the sweet smell of horse poop and cow poop,and this makes me happy, because it reminds me that I am exactly where I want to be at this moment in time...in my case, the Rocky Mountains. And I realize once again, that where I am is more important than what I do there. So for now, I am totally content. This place empowers me. I feel closer to God (or whatever your higher power may be). I get up in the morning and greet the sun. I set out in the cool of the morning on a bike ride or a mountain hike. I stay up late at night and watch the stars. So much more in the moment than I am elsewhere. I stop for deer, antelope, pika, chipmunks, elk or whatever crosses my path. I smile a lot more. I meet and greet all those who cross my path. There is no mission. No goal. Just living...one day at a time. Amen for that.
