Sensory Overload

What a difference a day makes.

Yesterday my wife and I were spreading mulch....

and playing with rocks....

and looking at snakes...

and a spider that stopped by.
 Pregnant much?


The only noise I could hear
was that of the birds,
who didn't seem to mind that we were in their playground.

The smell was that of wet woods
in an air thick with humidity.


Today

I'm surrounded by steel

and grease

and rust streaks.

The ever present smell of petroleum,
is trumped on the annoyance scale
only by the constant white noise of a tug boat
in the background.

Yep, one day can make a huge difference.

What a contrast.
Hope you can spy fireworks from the tug!

Worlds apart. You're a lucky man to be able to live in both.
