the sky above won't fall down...or photograph well

"i'm standing here on the ground
the sky above won't fall down...."

inxs running through my head- happens a lot. just ignore it, and maybe it'll go away.

my taxes are done. i sent uncle sam a check for a little over $200, and as soon as it was in the mail, i ran to the back to ensure it wouldn't bounce. that's just the caring sort of citizen i am.

you probably noticed i switched my mood again. (for the record, since these things get updated, i picked "excited" for today.....well, this evening. i would've been about three other things during the day, but i think i've finally relaxed.) in two weeks, i'll be in arizona again. yep- time for another hike into the grand canyon. interestingly enough, someone asked me today (with a straight face, no less) why i wanted to go to the canyon instead of say...new york city. what do you say to that? perhaps i'll get my scanner figured out and then i'll be able to bore you with photos from my last trip (november) and then you'll understand. the one thing i didn't manage to get on film was the biggest reason for going back. just before sunrise, when the moon had already set, we were able to see nothing but stars in the sky. i mean billions of them. i was in awe. unfortunately, it's practically impossible to capture that sort of thing on film....which is why i need to see it again.

speaking of stars,(theoretically) they're out right now. since i have to get up at 5:30 in the morning, i should probably be out, too. 'night.

I agree totally about the Grand Canyon. I turned down opportunities to go there TWICE thinking "Come on, it's a big crevasse with a little creek running through it. Big Deal." Then, the third time, I went and was A-S-T-O-U-N-D-E-D. By my third day there, I had to leave. I was too overwhelmed by the magnitude of the place.

But I preferred HIKING in Bryce Canyon. I just could get over the "red" everywhere. It was magical.

Have a great trip. I'll pop back soon. Citrus.
