The Created Man

garretson-4

It is forever ringing in my head. How does the human mind really work? The noise echoes in my ears, trying to tell me something. Then it vanishes, where did it go?

Humans are such weird creatures. Not all of us are blunt. Some stay in the shadows. There are countless different kinds in the world. But yet its own species some how forgets that.

Not everyone thinks alike, learns the same, or even acts like one another. They are not painted in black and white.

You may see one side of someone thinking they are horrid. But their other side is a hidden gemstone. To really know someone, you have to take in all their sides, even the bad ones. It’s the combination of bad and good that makes us people.garretson-1

Madness will come…

                                             December 7th
Oh, the people. So laid back and friendly. When I think of Texas, I think of guns, cowboys, and craziness! But this visit to Austin has been tremendously nice!

Oh wait! I spoke to soon! Once we left that wondrous place, the bog vehicles started sticking out. 1out of every 50 was not a guzzling gas hog. I wouldn’t have thought of Texas having small lil’ole german towns, but there’s at least three. A parade involving a blown up beer bottle with lights on it, is almost as hick as you can get. It also involved tractors blazing with colors, and a train of jeeps.

The music erupts the streets. Each bar has a different band playing. Silence is hard to come by on these streets of New Orleans.
Now I should have kept giving up on that dang alcohol. That deviant stuff! The next day I awoke without a dog and without a husband. Just the two cats and I, in the van. A panic overwhelmed me. I couldn’t remember the night before! Let alone know how I made it back here. Finally in a frantic panic of repeatedly calling my man, he answered. I became stunned once he had told me what I had done. My bitchy side came out on him with full force. He ended venturing to a park and sleeping there with my dog. It was over me being just ridiculous, I pushed him away, for nothing. At least he has forgiven me, this is someone worth holding onto. The rest of this roller coaster ride, I will be working on making up to him.

To the Sun Studio, where the famed used to roam. I can almost picture it, seeing Johnny Cash being driven down the street. Having his limo rampaged by fans. Chaos everywhere, and the screaming, almost too much to bare!

The history of human skulls captivates me. Their sunken eye sockets pull me into another world. The past comes alive! Not so many feelings cross the brain. It is just left with physical needs. My head jolts back to reality. I’m standing in a museum, a bit dazed. The sights begin with dinosaurs, then to human progression and culture. Many extinct animals were brought up and explored for more knowledge.
I’m left in awe and wonderment. The science of it all, leaves me a gasp.

Cave Life

Bats, come out, come out wherever you are!

I’m being swallowed whole and left in the dark. Everything seems closer to me than it actually is. Going into the Blanchard Springs Cavern your depth perception becomes a liar. Surrounded by rock and learning how it all was created was pretty amazing! And to think, it’s still alive. Like a living breathing thing, except it can’t move. Darn cave! When it is freezing outside, it would stay warm in here, in its belly.

This newfound white fungus, is wiping out cave bats! Fatality a year to the ones who get it is 90%! Soon these bats will become extinct! Our life cycle will alter once again, not for the better either. Many don’t realize how it’s the small things that play a big part in the eco system. 

Come one, come all! Step up and build the bats homes!

Decorations start consuming the streets. It’s the beginning of December, everyone’s stirring, even a mouse. It seems Christmas starts early in the U.S.. No matter where you are.
Our journey is still going smoothly. Yeehaw! Hanging out in Dallas, Texas!
We stumbled upon a stampede of cattle, rampaging in a park! They were ferocious with their long steel horns. These metal beast trying to ambush us! Good thing they are stuck in their places! They can’t stand up to my almightyness! Hah!

Engulf Me!

We are creeping on towards the Death Valley, where there lies a castle, a volcano crater, springs, Dante’s Peak, and many other sights to see. The road trip is going on a week and still is on a good note. Let’s keep it there!
Many eyes are on me, enjoying the trip through me. Sure everyone, I will explore for all to see!
A bombardment of feelings proceed to grow. This trip only seems to bring us closer. If we were an average couple, living in a van together would be living in hell.
Being full of wonderment about the new and exciting things is helpful. We are not going to burn out anytime soon!

We finally had our first fight. The heat started perspiring out of our pores. But it was bound to happen when we drove about 36 hours straight! We made it to Arkansas in one piece though. Thanksgiving with the crazy family.

This head of mine can’t take this abuse! The eruption of words from everyone’s mouths all at once! I can’t take it! I feel as if the inside of my brain is crumbling from the chaos. So much intensity!
I’m used to living on a mountain, just two of us. Now, seeing so many people that are loud and boisterous is too much for my brain to handle. The pounding is accelerating into a roar. I cannot stop it! Yet another bad day.
