They Logged It All Down!


I am beginning with one thing quilty and inexperienced.

The colours on this photograph match what I noticed yesterday after I went right down to Bear Department Street for a little bit highway hike –

I had no thought what I might discover as I had not been on this highway since September.

It does not look the identical – It is all modified.

And whereas I do know that is good for the setting – that new bushes can be planted, and they’re going to develop tall and robust on this highway that I like – it nonetheless introduced such a sense of empty brokenness. That every little thing has an finish.

No, this does not look the identical in any respect!

They’ve clear lower a lot of the pines –

The entire place smelled just like the lumber space inside a Lowe’s retailer. And I typically LIKE that scent – however this simply felt like devastation.

They lower a logging highway proper into the hillside.

I’ll miss the shade these huge pines gave on summer time walks with my Quiltville Inn gals!

Certainly one of two issues is occurring right here – both the forestry service will come again in and plant new seedlings that may develop up one other crop of bushes in 25 to 30 years, or – it’s going to turn into a grazing floor for cattle.

Like these guys – 

Whats up, infants!

That is what the highway regarded like BEFORE it was all lower down.

I am glad there may be “some” of it left.

And the gorgeous sound of the creek operating on the opposite aspect of the highway nonetheless soothes.

Past the deforestation issues start to look a bit extra acquainted.  The previous barn I like beside the winding filth highway I’m strolling.

The tumbledown cabin nonetheless stands – it made it via one other winter.

And one has to marvel – simply how lengthy has that axel stood within the yard?

Some bushes have fallen across the previous Plymouth – however it’s nonetheless right here, half buried.  

I like these tail fins.  Does anybody else really feel sort of “meh” about all vehicles trying the identical today, it does not matter what model/mannequin? 

Again finish of the cabin –

The colours of those pictures with the inexperienced not again but is simply so cool –

Previous barn on my return leg again to the automotive.

I do know the harvesting of bushes is critical.  I do know the lumber can be useful in so many numerous methods.

However my first glimpse of that hillside damage my coronary heart and introduced an “Oh, No!” to my lips.

Now as I proceed engaged on this venture, all I see is lacking bushes with each inexperienced piece I add.

It would take a while, however it’s going to get higher.

And to take me out of my emotions in the present day – it is HAIRCUT DAY with buddy Martha.

Which means we’re headed to Mt Ethereal, NC and we are going to hit the entire shops that we do not have regionally for objects we want.  We’ll get lunch out.  We’ll get our haircuts and really feel extra human and higher all the best way dwelling.

And it is a good day for it because it rained all evening, and  will proceed for a lot of the day – so undoubtedly a non-walking day.

Quiltville Quote of the Day!

It is easy. The vitality you ship out goes on and on touching others.⁣

I like what David Dieda mentioned:⁣

“Every part you do proper now ripples outward and impacts everybody. Your posture can shine your coronary heart or transmit anxiousness. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in despair. Your look can awaken pleasure. Your phrases can encourage freedom. Your each act can open hearts and minds.”⁣

Let your ripples be constructive ones!⁣ (Even when they mowed down the bushes!)
