New Name, New Blog

My last blog primarily spoke of life on the range.
It seems fitting, since I changed my e-mail address that I change my blog address as well.

Today is quiet on the range.  VERY QUIET.  I can sit outside and hear the squirrels running through the trees.
I can hear all of the geese.  Geese are very noisy when it is just them. There are NO noises of human beings around.  It can be deafening.  The universe is very large.
Last night I stayed outside alone until 4:00 AM.  Pitch black. Stars were bright.  No noise from cars or streets or people.  Only the noise of the universe and the stars.  It wasn't even scary.
I actually think I could be a homeless person and live out of my car.

Am I fitting in to the range?  No... not really.  I don't understand it.  I don't know the "rules."
I am loud when I should be quiet.  I am quiet when I should be loud.  I stay in when I should be out.  I go out when I should be in.  Very different set of rules.
But I do know the silence and the quiet.
And that can be good.  Sometimes people and words mess up a good thing.
