I think you should have stuck with that sporty little porkpie model you wore in Greece, rather than the trademark Stetson. Never too late for some rebranding.

Thanks Roy!

rad report roy.

i hadda one of my own meteora experiences,
though one in a different bottle...

...i knew that god was in a wiley mood when,

that morning i was half a pitch into my day,
the clock was still limping thru the 7 oclock hour.

im at sugarloaf, climbing pony express,
which at this hour is tucked cool into the moring shade
behind the mountain.

suddenly my dawn light
explodes into bright warmth,
like someone gathered sunlight in a mirror
and showered me with it.

so i look back over my shoulder, what-the-f*#k like,

i see an orange blazing ball about the size of a quater
slice the sky wide open.

sweet, im showered now and i have one less duty
before bed.

a minute or so later,
one thunderous boom of a magnitude i've never before heard
ignites my dormant ears
and the mountain shakes in excitement,
i contemplate mid move

"should go down and check if the world is
but i figure the end of the world can
wait till i finish my two pitches.

Meteora is one of the most inspiring and beautiful places I have ever seen pictures of! The view of Kastraki with Der Spindle in the center is an amazing pic!
