No Waterfall for Moonhawk and MoonCove

Upon searching for “waterfall” on my Maps app, the closest result was Wolf Creek Waterfall in Palestine. I was pretty excited because Palestine is only an hour away. 

This morning, Kovi and I left for Wolf Creek Lake around ten. I had searched for the waterfall specifically, and we ended up at the Palestine airport with the GPS basically telling us to venture into the woods. 

Instead, I followed a road that wrapped around the Wolf Creek area and ended up at the official Wolf Creek Lake park. I drove around and didn’t see any trails, so we parked and I decided to just search for the waterfall, on foot, with Maps.

Where we parked, and the entire park, was on the opposite side of where Maps was telling me the waterfall is. Since I couldn’t see a trail, we just walked to the side of the lake and began making our way to the opposite side.

We quickly crossed over a dam and then faced dense woods. Following my GPS, Kovi and I entered the thick brush. The thorn level in these woods has to compose over half of the vegetation within. Kovi quickly grew tired of this sticky trek but we kept pushing anyway. Not wanting to get lost, we stayed close to the lake so I knew where we were the whole time.

It started out simple but fast forward an hour and we were still searching for this waterfall after crossing a muddy creek and getting stuck with thorny vines every 2 feet. By the way, we still hadn’t seen this mysterious waterfall.

We hit a point when we came to the actual Wolf Creek crossover point, but the water was far too deep for me to walk across and for Kovi to swim across. Maps had already said we were right beside, in front of, on top of, and passed the waterfall. Apparently we walked a circle around it and totally missed it. Who knows?

At that point I could tell Kovi was ready to get out of the woods and into open air so we set out to back track since we couldn’t cross Wolf Creek.

When I checked Maps, I saw that we were pretty close to the airport from earlier, so we headed that way instead of trying to trek through the thorn haven again. 

We cut through more vines (with our bodies) and eventually reached a large hill. We climbed up and at the top was the wood-less city airport. Walking along the wood line to avoid any suspicious stares, Kovi and I found the road that led to Wolf Creek Lake and we started our final stretch back to the car.

It was probably another hour of walking, but at least it was painless without thorn needles pricking every inch of my skin. 

Finally, we got back to the car. Kovi and I drank some water and loaded up to head home. On the way out, I spotted a little clearing that might have been the opening of a trail…

…However, I felt Kovi’s desire to leave as she spread out in the back seat to nap. I was also starving. 

Maybe next time, waterfall. Mysterious, hidden, annoying waterfall. Stick to the trails, friends.

363 – The Princess

She’s a chapstick bandit

Loves gummies and candy

Super sweet with sass

So helpful, yet so bad

She’s an angel from above

With some fire from below

Loves barbies and makeup

And motorcycles and reptiles

Catches frogs at dawn

In a sparkly princess dress

Dances to Jesus Loves Me

And all things Cocomelon

Likes action movies and heroes

Unicorns and ponies

Doesn’t eat much

But she’ll always eat

Chips and French fries

Loves her momma

Loves her brothers

Loves her sister too

Though they butt heads

They’re much the same

Sweet like her momma

Stubborn like her daddy

Dinosaurs and unicorns

She likes to cuddle at night

She cares for her babies

And does what she wants

She tries to be grown

While sucking her thumb

She likes being the boss

The boss of everyone

She was just an infant

When we met

But even back then I knew

We were destined to be

Best friends

362 – Always Us Against the World

Remember when it was just you and me against the world, Collin?

Hey, little man. I want you to know it still is. We’re a team, bud. We’ll always be a team no matter how many companions we add to our pack.

We have a special bond, you and I. A special relationship no one else could understand. It’s us against the world, now and forever.

You’re my boy and you came to me when I needed you most. We needed each other, little guy. You with that beautiful black shiny coat and me with my beautiful black shiny soul. We were destined to find one another.

So please don’t be jealous or think I’ve forgotten our time spent alone together. You’re mine and I’m yours, boy. It’s us against the world until the end of time.

357 – Loving Pets Too Much

It is both a blessing and a curse to love these animals so very deeply.

When they pass on, it’s a silver bullet through my sensitive heart. I mourn like a mother mourns a lost child. It’s pain so excruciating I wonder why I ever get myself into these vulnerable situations.

But when they’re here – oh man, it’s all worth it. All those kisses and warm feelings, seeing how excited they get when I get back home, wagging tails, soft cuddles, long walks – it adds so much joy to life. Companionship, loyalty, bonds…family.

Yes, it’s painful when they go. And it hurts when they’re no longer around. But every ounce of pain is worth every moment of joy and happiness they brought into my life.

Thank you, furry companions – past, present, and future – for the heartwarming happiness you have / will have given me.

355 – The Soulsphere

I don’t think souls are earthly. The earth and the universe we are in – they’re just places we inhabit for awhile, you know.

Souls come from an entirely different plane of existence. A realm beyond all physical realms. It’s not material or concrete. It’s a form of matter far too complex for our earthly brains to comprehend.

The Soulsphere, perhaps, is what it is. It’s where all creations of the multiverse originate. It’s where all souls go to Rest In Peace before returning to a physical plane.

Beyond the universe, beyond the multiverse, and nowhere physically present to our human eyes – but our souls know it’s there somewhere.

Of course, it’s difficult to say anything exists without definite proof. I believe that’s another earthly trait – needing concrete evidence of every theory. We’re forced to follow our feelings and feelings are not always reliable.

Who knows? Soulsphere. Maybe so.


Not from this realm

343 – Bonded for Life

Our souls still have time left together – here on earth. You and I – we’re not done yet. We still have so many memories left to make, girl. I’m so lucky our souls crossed paths. We are eternally bonded.

Oh my Lady Vader Zader Bug, our story won’t end here. It has only just begun, beautiful girl. Beautiful soul. See more of Ladybug on ReconCove.com

342 – The World is Perception

The water looks exceptionally blue today. The sky is clear of clouds and the sun is out.

I think our reactions to the weather have to do with our attitudes.

Rain is nice when I’m gloomy.

Thunderstorms are nice in general.

Maybe I’m just dark.

I love the sun.

I’m a child of sun.

But something about that thunder and those dark clouds is so comforting.

Weather is perceptive.

So is everything else about the world.

12 Animal Farm Quotes that Will Open Your Eyes

In 1945, Animal Farm by George Orwell was released into the world. This novella tells the story of farm creatures overthrowing their harsh human owner, only to see themselves become no better in the end. It animates the events of the Russian Revolution. Here are the top 12 quotes from this thought provoking book:

1 – “Man is the only creature that consumes without producing.” (Old Major, Chapter 1)

Are we more than exploiting the earth and animals? Or are we destined to radiate greed until our species comes to an end?

2 – “I do not know when that Rebellion will come, it might be in a week or in a hundred years, but I know, as surely as I see this straw beneath my feet, that sooner or later justice will be done.” (Old Major, Chapter 1)

Old Major’s words of wisdom. He dies with hope of revolution and freedom for the future of his kind.

3 – “Weak or strong, clever or simple, we are all brothers.” (Old Major, Chapter 1)

All different, and all connected. We have to stick together.

4 – “Rings shall vanish from our noses, And the harness from our back, Bit and spur shall rust forever, Cruel whips no more shall crack.” (A Piece from Beasts of England, Chapter 1)

Dreaming of freedom in songs and chants. Songs send sparks of revolution into the hearts of all the creatures.

5 – “…those ribbons that you are so devoted to are the badge of slavery. Can you not understand that liberty is worth more than ribbons?” (Snowball, Chapter 2)

Lesson: Do not let glamour distract from the ultimate goal. Do not let the luxuries blind the fact of slavery.

6 – “All the animals capered with joy when they saw the whips going up in flames.” (Narrator, Chapter 2)

Slaves, no more! Celebrating with smoke and flames…

7 – “The 7th Commandment: All animals are equal” (Chapter 2)

No one is above anyone else. We are all in this together.

8 – “…the others had to be content with this cryptic answer.” (Narrator, Chapter 3)

Are they trying to deceive us? Never take answers for their face value. There’s always something else going on behind closed doors…

9 – “…the animals worked like slaves. But they were happy in their work…” (Narrator, Chapter 6)

If the work has meaning, it’s not really work, is it? Who are we working for?

10 – “…they had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fiercer, growling dogs roamed everywhere, and when you had to watch your comrades torn to pieces after confessing to shocking crimes.” (Narrator, Chapter 7)

Living under the gun…we are free to speak…but are we, truly?

11 – “Their lives now, they reasoned, were hungry and laborious; was it not right and just that a better world should exist somewhere else?” (Narrator, Chapter 9)

There must be more to life than lives of labor and suffering, right? Is there more to life than work, sweat, blood, and tears? Does a better world exist?

12 – “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.” (Narrator, Chapter 10)

The greedy, power hungry, and selfish – they are all the same.
