The bluebird of happiness 
is a poor man’s dream
consisting only of moments —
treasure each moment in your heart

Recently, Joy received a Bookmans gift card. Bookmans is more than just a bookstore, it’s an entertainment exchange with a commitment to the people and communities they have served for over forty years. While there, I selected three books: Epitaph for a Desert Anarchist — The Life and Legacy of Edward Abbey by James Bishop; The River of Doubt by Candie Millard; Spanish Essentials for Dummies, the last two in preparation for my August trip to the Amazon in northern Bolivia. — kenne

There they were, just there
Yellow fireworks shooting off
In a field of green.

Peering out at a hiker
Going unnoticed.

I sometimes choose to think that man is a dream,
thought an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun
. . . belief? What do I believe in? I believe in sun. In 
rock. In the dogma of the sun and the doctrine of the rock.
I believe in blood, fire, woman, rivers,  eagles, storms,
drums, flutes, banjos and broom-tailed horses.

— Edward Abbey, A Voice Crying In The Wilderness
