Nothing Gold

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

Memory Lane Monday II



That's a picture of me wading in a small lake in Mexico a few years ago. When Schuyler first started working for his company, we spent 6 months traveling to different plants around North America; three weeks at each location. So we spent three weeks in the small, northern, industrial town of Monclova, about two hours west of Monterrey. Basically, the town was in the middle of the desert, but about 100km away was the natural wonder of Cuatrocienegas, a naturally occurring series of small pozas with their own ecosystem right in the middle of the desert! We visited several that were good for swimming and one that was the deepest blue I've ever seen. The blue was caused by the fact that, though the pond was only, maybe 20 yards in diameter, it was more than 75 meters deep! All in all, it was an amazing drive through rural Mexico. I'll need way more than one post to describe it...

You are so culturally sensitive. Your switch to the metric system has me impressed, and reaching for my calculator!
