In the silence, my mind began to wander as we hiked along the trails. At one point, I began to think about Bob Ross while passing a random and solitary tree. As you may or may not know, trees make everything better in the world of Ross. And they really do:)

Bob Ross once said, "You need the dark in order to show the light." While he may have been speaking about his painting process, Bob often spoke with a deeper meaning. I mean, that's why his show was so awesome. It wasn't just about painting:)
Unfortunately, it'll take more than Bob Ross to get us through this national crisis. And it's times like these when birding and art and discovery and life should be free from all this madness. It's not. Somehow, somewhere there will come a breaking point when the so called "whining" turns violent and history will repeat itself....again. For now, the US is in it deep. Until next time......
