Well for me its Tuesday evening and work for the most part is done for the day. SSOO--last night I tried something new as far as a pipe and tonight I shall repeat it with loading up a Scott Hudson reverse Calabash with some Petersons Summertime. For the longest time I was on the fence about these darn pipes and whether the darn things were worth a try. WELL--my verdict is in---they work. At least this little rascal does good. The design had me doubting when I looked at others designed like this but my mind is changing and fast. Last nights smoke was super with it and tonights is one I am enjoying. This may not be my last pipe designed like that--it really has surprised me as I had EXTREME doubts and had the word "gimmick" in my head--not any more. The evening air has settled and the light breeze has stopped. The stars appear and then hide as I watch the clouds ever so gently coasting across the sky. Then from the north the lights appear as a large jet looks as if it is just floating along as it approaches and has more miles to go until it reaches our nations capital. The Katy-dids are singing their cool evening songs the smell of smoke from a wood stove hints at my nose--I glance to the sky once more as the beaming and twinkling of Venus shines towards earth like a lone beacon in the distance--oh yes an evening of allowing the mind to wonder and clear from yet another day of dealing with the public and its problems. Right now its just me and my pipe--the aromatic aromas fill the air around me as if a blanket of comfort surrounds me as if to say--be still--relax--the worries of today are gone--the worries of tomorrow will greet you soon enough--they will wait. For now--relax for just a little while--count the blessings and simply be still and patient. To all of my Brothers and Sisters here at PSF--as always may your blessings be many and your burdens be few. I bid you all a good evening and may you all have a better tomorrow.
