Monday Morning Sidewalk – Back To The Path

Monday Morning Fly Fishing Sidewalk Harvey Talk

What a Monday! I know you’ll be happier wherever you are than meeting with accountants and lawyers, right? Monday, it seems, can be a day for medicine of all kinds. Nevertheless, I hope you all had a great weekend, and don’t pin your happiness on the Dallas Cowboys who you should expect to disappoint you by now (unlike fly fishing in every way).

Last week was nearly a thousand-miler, and I touched on the scene at Rockport – Port Aransas, but then got pulled away for the weekend job. The burden of the scene down there on the Texas Gulf Coast weighs heavy, and I am still trying to figure out what to do, more specifically WHAT I CAN DO about it. I am pretty sure my greatest skills for contributing to their recovery are not a chainsaw (have one), or a hammer (have many) and shovel (have too many).

I am looking to employ what I call the “skills” I have here – story-telling through photography and writing – on a larger scale, to a broader audience … somehow. I want to make a public appeal to you club members who are reading this: I would like to ask for a few minutes of your next meetings to show some photographs from Rockport, tell their story as it begins, and present you with a snapshot of the problems, and inspire you to respond to the Hurricane Harvey disaster in your own unique ways that go beyond the usual giving you do to broader fundraisers for cancer and national efforts. This is a Texas disaster that needs Texans to respond with pinpoint efforts.

Cutting this morning short, and off to those meetings. I will dribble out some more about last week soon – and go big on the discussion boards to focus more eyes on the Hurricane Harvey effort — within the next day or two.
