We are having a another sunny pleasant weekend in Tulsa. Son and I decided to go for a little walk on the Arkansas River near downtown.
We have some bigass trees in the River Parks. Son is going to tell on me for using the word bigass.
We saw the crane being used to build the new One Place tower downtown. The crane is supposed to be 325 feet tall. Hmmm, I was going to link to their web site but they don’t have one. Hmmm… Should I make one for them?
We saw a flag flying in the breeze and some fishermen in the river just below a low water dam. Hmmm… (Is that irritating you?) I’m afraid for their safety is all.
We saw a homeless campsite. Usually they are more discreet than this. What a way to live.
We saw some wilted flowers in a tree planted as a memorial. I’ve come across lots of things like this in my running, walking, hiking, geocaching, activities. Lots of sadness out there.
This is the plaque next to the tree. I googled the name. The only hit I got that come closest to being appropos was a businessman in his late 20″s who was murdered in the New York City area back in the 80’s. Lots of mystery out there.
I was taking a picture of the trees and the sky. I know, I lust too much after bare naked trees. This time one of the squirrel’s nest moved.
I didn’t have my good camera with me and of course no tripod but I think that the squirrel’s nest is actually an eagle of some kind. Maybe a bald eagle? (But probably a hawk of some sort.)
I’m not really sure. He got tired and flew off.
We ambled through the rest of our walk. We took our time as we looked here there and everywhere. We were a little tired. I’m participating with my friend Baloney’s Perfect Pairings today with the following verse.
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
(Isaih 40:28-31) NIV (Thanks Bible Gateway!)
