After work we met at a restaurant which was next to an old growth forest here in Oregon. As the sun was starting to set in the distance I could feel the strength and power of these ancient trees and giant rocks covered with moss that surrounded them. As I gazed upon their beauty it was like I was actually being drawn in like the calling of an old Indian tribe who once thrived in these mountains. As much as I would have loved to walk those same paths as the ancients once did I realized that with the setting sun I may vanish into the darkness never to return to my modern world and slowly backed away from this wonder.
We ate dinner at the Stone Cliff Inn and enjoyed the sounds and sights of the Clackamas River just below our table on the outside balcony. After we all ate and walked back to the parking lot I noticed the bright full moon in the distance and turned once again to the forest to see the visions of moon shadows dancing upon the landscape before me. What lure is is that pulls me into this forest I don’t know, but there is something here that is so significant here that film makers used these same grounds to produce a film called Twilight. The must of felt the same primal energy that I felt as I stood upon the ground and gazed into this forest.
With a late dinner I notice that my blood sugar is off once again this morning, but I know that I will be returning to a regular schedule once again tomorrow and things will be OK.
