Got a couple of new toys today. A Morakniv Classic from Sweden, sharp as fuck with a scandinavian grind, and I also scored a new SOL thermal breathable waterproof bivy bag. If you need me, I’ll be hidden in the bushes over there somewhere.
I’m cool as fuck in the right setting. Unfortunately for me, that setting happens to be out in the middle of the woods somewhere far from any other humans.
Cattails are an extremely useful and prevalent wild plant. Not only are cattails edible, either raw, boiled, or processed down into flour, but they can be used as an antiseptic on cuts, wounds, burns, and stings. You can weave baskets from their leaves and make hand drills from their stalk. The fluffy seeds also make great tinder that easily catches a spark for lighting fires. It’s like a one stop shop when you’re out in the woods. If only it could be smoked..
Imagine not being very hungry, but someone puts in front of you the most delicious pizza that you’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. For six years you go back to that same pizza parlor and get the same thing every time. The only problem is, now pizza place is owned by someone new, and there isn’t another slice of pizza that’s even comparable. You’ve gone searching for new pizza places, you’ve seen pictures of pizza that look AMAZING, however, when you bite in, they are just missing something. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but it’s not like that one. The one you’ll never have again.
Now imagine I’m not talking about a slice of pizza..
She is the brightest star on the darkest of nights. Other celestial bodies crowd the aphotic sky, yet none burning as brilliantly as this one. Her aura radiates towards the earth in a manner unlike the others, yearning to be gazed upon. I, for one, could watch you waltz across the infinite heavens every sleepless night until time ceased to be.
There is a certain solitude that’s brought with the snow, falling ever so carelessly from the atmosphere to the pedosphere.Flickr
I’ve been drawing pictures like crazy recently, which is coming out of nowhere. I think I’m gonna go sit in the woods some day soon and try to sketch out the actual scene that’s in front of me..

I drew another picture today. I’ve just been bored and letting my mind wander, this is the place it decided to go to..
