I woke up just after 6 a.m. this morning and put the coffee on. To me there is nothing like the smell of fresh made coffee. That first cup tastes so good. I sat at the table and sipped my coffee as the sun rose, a really nice sight I might add. As it rose, an interesting cloud hung there.
There you have it, sunrise for today. I forgot that I took a picture last night as the sun set and thought this was a nice evening.
I had company while having coffee this morning.
While watching the sun rise, an Eagle flew by and it got me thinking. Watching the Eagle gliding on the airwaves and circling probably looking for a meal, it got me to thinking about just how free the Eagle is. Probably, more free than any animal or human.
What I mean by that is, the Eagle pretty much doesn't have much to worry about from predators. I would think the only predator is man. I can't think of anything that can fly that would pose a threat to the Eagle. They fly very high most times and when on the ground, the slightest movement makes them fly away out of harms way.
As a person living in the BUSH, I consider myself to be somewhat free and safe. At least I thought I was. I am beginning to think that those of us who have decided to live a remote lifestyle, are becoming an Endangered Species. I was listening to a talk show out of Anchorage on the radio. The subject was about building Alaska in an industrial way. The people who live on the road system were calling in and talking about how the state should build roads through the wilderness to access many of the villages to promote more business opportunities.
These people also said, with more roads hunters could access hunting areas where they couldn't before. I've always known it was inevitable but now the reality of it is setting in. I could never live in a populated area. I will have to give this more thought and then I will share that thought at a later date.
