Casting my net
Today, I came home after work intending to veg until bedtime. It was that kind of day. I didn’t know how much I didn’t know until I knew some of it.
I got a call about a possible lead on an apartment so I went to look. I couldn’t find the manager at one place and the other place was not yet vacant or viewable.
I decided to take a drive. I like, when I dispatch a call, to be able to see in my head where the deputies are going – what the terrain is like, what the surroundings are like, and any proximate dangers. I took a call today from a little community about 10 miles east of the town I am in. I drove out there and then took the VERY scenic route back. I went almost to Oklahoma and then came back around on some county roads through the Lake Marvin area.
I did not find a place to live. I did find two does with fawns and had to stop while 4 wild turkeys crossed the road in front of me. I found oil wells and oil fields. I found rolling, sage brush covered vistas and then tunnels of dark, leafy greenness.
I found peace.
