Eden
Some very dear friends have a cabin high up on Lookout Mountain. The topography is unusual; there is a lake up there and it is lovely. They gave the use of the place last night, an amazing respite. I grilled a steak and topped it with escargot in butter and garlic. How decadent can a person be? But, the real thrill came when I saw the stars. I went down to the dock to skinny dip I stripped and dove in to that incredible mountain-lake water and when I surfaced, the dome of the sky expanded and the stars were stunning. We don't see the stars down here in the city...I mean, we see a few of the brightest, but not the zillions that are there in the darkness. Surely this is what Eden was like...swimming naked and weeping with joy, just looking at the wonder of it.

the appalachian mountains can be pretty terrific. the water, a bit cold. i could only imagine the cold splash reverberating across all the neurons firing back up to the brain.
