Throwing Dirt

Throwing Dirt, Capitol Lake, Olympia, Washington

I was walking around Capitol Lake and saw this young girl throwing handfuls of dirt from the walking/running path into the lake. The wind would pick up the dust and swirl it around in a nice pattern. She was doing it again and again… and it reminded me how much I enjoyed doing that as a child. As an adult, I have often rolled rocks down hillsides in the mountains (when I knew it was safe) … and have also spent a lot of time throwing big rocks into lakes … especially from high altitudes. The splash is wonderful … and the sound is always a little different. The simple joys.
