Like the butterfly, I keep moving on not really worrying about tomorrow for the Good Book tells me that tomorrow will take care of itself. I can’t see myself stopping anytime soon! I have fish to catch, birds to carve, books to write and many days to sit and enjoy the great outdoors.
Maybe you can only do so through a window to your backyard or from a small garden near your home but it is just great to have seen and done all the things most of us got to do.
This column is not only for the outdoorsman; the hunter, the angler, the hiker, etc. This column is for anyone that can draw from the outdoors as I can. It is for people that can see the beauty in something as simple as a butterfly or enjoy the wind rustling a pile of leaves.
Let me take you outdoors to help you enjoy its beauty even though you may not be able to be there. When you read this column I’ll be in Alaska enjoying the outdoors at its absolute best I hope to bring you a piece of it back with me.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and fall and see the beauty of nature even in a place as close as your own backyard!
