Craving Springtime…

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” Mark Twain

While traveling over the recent holidays, I came upon this large pot at a friend’s home in California. The flower’s splash of color and the trailing plant was one of many to be enjoyed. At home (Portland) the Winter drabness of greys, browns, greens are waiting for the early colors of Rhododendrons, Camelias, Azaleas, Tulips, and Daffodils. The Daphne’s fragrance, by the front porch, will be appreciated. In the meantime I do need to finally climb up that ladder and fix that clogged gutter.

opening the door to…

‘Every one of us bears within him the possibility of all passions, all destinies of life, in all its manifold forms. Nothing human is foreign to us.’ Edward G. Robinson re tapping into his acting personas.

Visual Addictions……..

“A visual experience is vitalizing. Whereas to write great poetry, to draw continuously on one’s inner life, is not merely exhausting, it is to keep alight a consuming fire.” Kenneth Clark

No offense intended to the poetically inclined………

Psychology of Colors

photography--pink flowers-gardening-SwittersBPsychology of Colors

“Red is the color of energy. It’s associated with movement and excitement. People surrounded by red find their heart beating a little faster and often report feeling a bit out of breath”

I need to wear more red shirts, or perhaps green.

The Fix Is Removed…Cut Off…Better Make Your Memories Now

Seriously, what could possibly keep you from fishing, from fly fishing? I mean demographically you have all that disposable income and time to travel far and wide. You are that rare creature that can bum around and just go with never a concern for job, family or obligations. I mean how lucky! Just imagine what would happen if that were cut off. Not just for a month, but maybe months, if not a year or more. 

Now, if you are the fisherman (so tedious to be all inclusive, so I won’t bother) that is out there for the opener and the yearly camping trip and then the one trip in the Fall for Salmon, well I don’t really mean you, but I know you do like those outings. No, I am referring to the guy that use to go several times a month if not weekly. What if you could not fish or even sit and tie. How could that happen?

The ability, the motivation, the passion to fish or tie has been seriously interrupted. The obvious intrusive forces are eventually, for most, there: family, work, health and life. Not to be dismissed because of their apparent obvious possibilities…they are the most powerful forces that individually or in combination remove that rod or bobbin from your hand. 

Like the old athlete, warrior, outdoorsman…I hope you accumulated your memories while you could because withdrawal, addiction, mind tweaking aggravation is a very uncomfortable condition; especially if there are no recollections of rivers, stream, lakes and the piscatorial encounters that carry us through the withdrawals. Better make memories while you can.

Life: In The Crucible……………….

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

In one of those quiet rooms in a hospital; down the hallway from some harsh reality. SwittersB
