    Way to go Mata... If we fight our afflictions to "keep from dying" we are going to lose. If we fight them to live in spite of our afflictions we win.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Thanks for sharing your story with us who do not know, I enjoyed your report and even more so your photos. Just the other day I was talking to a friend about those little flags you have above your hammock.
    What are they and what do they do, I gather they must have a meaning.

    Good luck with hammocking in the future.

    Those flags are Tibetan Prayer flags...I have a set of them flying in my yard. The set I bring with me backpacking and camping were brought back from Leh, India, by a friend of mine. I began flying them many years ago when my brother-in-law was sent to Iraq and have continued flying them for all of us.

    Here is the story behind the flags:
    http://www.tibetanprayerwheels.com/prayer-flags.html

    This is not where I'd buy them but it does have a good explanation as to their meaning.

    See them flying over a campsite and you might very well find me nearby...it has become something for which I am well known with my fellow backpackers...

    I think my favorite picture of the flags was this one taken at Devil's Tower from inside my tent:

    Way to fight it, Mata! I had no idea you had been going through so much, but you are a real sure nuf soldier! I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. God bless you, and I am praying for you!

    And, that is an incredible shot of Devil's Tower.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
