gather ye wild water while ye may

I’ve been thinking about drinking the water from a little creek up towards the top of Brown mountain for a few months. It looks so clear and cool and refreshing and alive and real. There’s really nothing going on above it – no livestock, nary a trail, just the peak of Brown. Brown is a soulful mountain and seems to have a hold on me so it seems only right to sip from its waters.

I was up there yesterday on the bike. Great ride – out of the saddle a lot – going for it. Incredible blue sky cool perfect day with huge winds at the top and lots of ocean to view. A great day to sip wild water - no chemical treatment, no sterilization, no plastic bottle, no theft, no aqueduct, no transport – just rain on the mountain.

But, the creek was dry. Spring in the angeles…

If it's not pure, I understand it's a good way to loose weight. Well maybe not a good way, kinda shitty actually.
