I need more RAM

I need more RAM
Not the computer kind. Not Random Access memory.
That kind of RAM I’ve got plenty of.
I need this kind. The kind with hooves and horns. The kind you catch a glimpse of on a mountainside.
I need more days outside before the chill of winter comes.
More trips to the zoo, more walks in the park.
More ruddy sunsets at the beach, more paths strewn with leaves.
I need more outdoors and fresh air, more forest brooks and smooth round rocks.
More Saturdays at the arboretum, more mornings in the hills.
Less widgets and more wallabies
And lots more ram.

    Beautiful pic. Me to me to count me on the more ram. We haven’t been to the zoo in ages. I am missing it. or to our property out a little way busyness has taken over.

    Me too, Karen. Let’s play a trip to the Arboretum, or somewhere else beautiful, together. What do you think?

    Me, too, Karen. I need all those things, too. Our weather change is startling to me; I am mourning summer–and then the time changes this weekend. Ugh! I can’t draw but I can see you drawing something about time and how man can manipulate it and waste it so effectively.
