Loss and sadness
It has been an extremely dissapointing stretch the last few days. I am stuck down at the Madison Midwest rep show, a totally lame and dead event for me. On top of that I learned about this latest trail developement. We are losing the greenspace in the town of Duluth so fast it is making my head spin. But that is not all. I heard last night that there might be a Cabelas super store slapped on the exit to my home. To put this in perspective, we live in a very slow moving rural and scenic place, to think that a Cabelas is coming and with all the trash it brings with it is crushing my heart. But what hurts me more is to speak to friends and neighbors who's only retort is that they should take the opportunity and buy land so they can profit on the increased value. That makes me sad, we dont fight anymore, we just get in line and accept the bullshit and indeed make money on it. Sad.
