Vedder River Run - Part One

On the beach, on the extreme left of this photo you can see Lucy lying on the beach by our "day camp"

Two young "bathing beauties" (Lucy's daughter, and Lucy's son's girlfriend) , above, have found a perch each at the back of the root of the tree that you see in the next photo (this photo is taken pointing West). This is our somewhat "private" swimming hole. The river we float down is to the left of the beach (sand bank) in front of that long row of trees.

This is taken from our "day camp". The photo above this one is the back side of this root system. This photo is taken pointing South(?), i think, South East. The above photo is taken from the opposite side, pointing West.

Tyko and Lucy in the river,

PurdyDog on the bank. (She is not as adventurous as she used to be a few years ago). This is at the beginning of the "run" - just before we round a corner to end up where you see this couple standing, this next photo.

I asked this couple if they would mind if i took their photo; the current was quite strong as you will see in the next photo.

Here i am struggling not to fall down as the water rushes past my leg.

My Mission; Part One 'ON MEDITATION!'

Meditation - "the need to calm the reptilian brain.... " - Matthew Fox

me and Chi Chi, my room-mate's Boa Constrictor
(photo circa 1970 something?)

"Feeding and taming the reptilian brain - put your anger into something creative"

"Fear can so overcome the human heart that it drives compassion out"

- Matthew Fox
