Procaffeinator Thought - Downtown Missoula, Montana


Hmmm...deep thoughts via today's photo...are you perhaps in good company (with me, of course!) as a procaffeinator? 
Do tell about your favourite jump start.... the comments link awaits below. 
(Note: The tea contingent is also abundantly represented in our midst.)

(This pseudo vocabulary word brought to you courtesy of Missoula's very own Liquid Planet and a lovely downtown evening stroll.)

Riding High - Clark Fork River, Missoula, Montana

Crazy enough, surfers and kayakers are out riding downtown Missoula's Brennan's Wave during the worst spring flooding on the Clark Fork River since 1908. (But they did provide some entertainment during our evening stroll to savour the latest Sweet Peaks flavours - which will ship to your very door!)

Click here to contrast the above scene across the river to the old Milwaukee rail depot with this similar and more typical view in August 2013. The above photo is conspicuously lacking mid-river islands and the shore-hugging rocks shown in the 2013 foreground - which are underneath a good part of this week's perfect wave.

Leaf Luminescence - Missoula, Montana

Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore.
There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree,
 the trembling of a leaf.”
 - Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)

Water Under The Bridge - Madison Street Bridge, Missoula, Montana


“They crossed the rickety bridge... She paused for a moment and contemplated the restless waters. They took to her like a rich tawny wine poured out of some capacious barrel by some high ruthless hand who had suddenly discovered the futility of all riches ...Maybe she was just an imaginative old fool. ...Ah, sure what harm anyway to be guessing at infinite mysteries, and she so small on a mountain road?”
-From the 1953 short story “She Went By Gently” by Paul Vincent Carroll (1900-1968)

(PS: Thankfully, the Clark Fork River started receding after Saturday 12 May 2018!)
