It has been a hot weekend around here. I took some time yesterday to go creek fishing for redeye bass [Link]. Here [Link] is a good article about how to catch them. A buddy and I wandered along about 3/4 mile of a local creek, casting into likely spots. We only caught a few small fish, but it was a good time. We released all we caught. Redeye bass are wonderful eating though, and I have enjoyed many fish dinners caught from this particular creek.
Possum living is all about living on our own terms, slowing down and kicking back and doing what we really want to be doing instead of burning ourselves out in the pursuit of what society tells us we should strive for. It is about finding easier and more interesting ways of providing what we really need, as an alternative to paying the high price in time, money and freedom that society extracts in exchange for servicing these needs; and about finding the strength to say no to those services we don't really need.
