Happy T-Day

Trout Day! Decided to smoke up some trout for the Thanksgiving feast.

1 to 1 1/4 lb trout. Brine bath for about an hour then drizzled the inside with some local honey, lemon/garlic seasoning and a sprig of organic rosemary.

Went up to ME this weekend for the final dealings with the boat. We now officially own a boat and it was delivered to our friends house for the winter.

First night on the boat was rather cold but otherwise pretty fun. Nothing like Yukon Jack for the cold hoary nights.

Birthdays, Boats and a Journey to Tibet.

So we bought a boat! ....but we'll get to that later.

Nothing like turning another year older to make you evaluate what is currently working and not working in your life. Nothing like a trip to a mountain top Tibetan Buddhist Monastary, KARMA TRIYANA DHARMACHAKRA (KTD), to make you feel silly for stressing about it to begin with. Clear your mind, the answers are already there.
"We all have a Buddha Mind", our tour guide explained while we sat upon meditation pillows in the sun bathed Main Shrine room floating with the remnants of incense -- "It's just under all the layers of the ego", she finished.
