Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Sharing the Wealth

A couple of reminders that we weren't here first.

First, in the local news, a 7-year old boy was walking along the trail with his family just off Flagstaff Road yesterday and was attacked by a mountain lion. From information released so far, the boy's injuries were not critical. The mountian lion, however, was tracked down and killed today.

Second, also yesterday, while running on a trail near Boulder Valley Ranch and Boulder Reservoir, I nearly stepped on a rattlesnake, which indicated its displeasure loudly, quickly getting my attention. We were both unharmed.

Simple lesson. We cherish the natural world. We should not be surprised by its extremes.
