Deep In The Forest
After looking for a nice clear entrance to this lost world, I quickly followed the path all the way to my first odd discovery. That's right, you guessed it! It was this rotted old tree stump. I have to say it's not anything special, but it does have a kind of character all its own. Even if it doesn't, I just like the way it looks. I wonder how long it will last there before it rots away.
I mean really! Did you ever wonder how long it really takes something like that to disappear back into the earth, never to be seen again? I see old rotted logs all the time, and I always wonder things like that. Some of these logs have been laying there for years. I go past them and they're a little worse looking every year, but they're still laying right there. But there are others I find no trace of after only one year's time.
I was really impressed with the sheer size of this leftover crater, but I was oddly just a little afraid to step down into it. I contented myself with walking all the way around the rim. For some odd reason I imagined all sorts of vague dangers at the center of that hole. A den of vipers, a bear trap, a sink hole to hell, or maybe even the entrance to another dimension.
That all may sound like an imagination run wild, and you may be right! But that's why I write this blog. This blog is my play area where I can release and share this wild imagination full of monsters and bunny rabbits. One day you too will be on a peaceful walk in the woods, and a little squirrel on the side of the trail will look up at you and say, "Hey bud, come over here. Just wait til you see what I'm gonna show you!"
