What is Danger?

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

My children never cease to amaze. Yesterday, the Fourteen Year Veteran of life worked with his sister to get Dutch Bros coffee for teachers and a few friends.

It was well coordinated in that they determined their favorite drinks through observation. I have found myself alone for most of it due to school and preset routines of my family.

In other news, I am alone, but not depressed. In reality, I have met a lot of cool folks in my hiking and window shopping.

In my hiking, some of the old instincts are coming back. I felt like a wild animal when I smelled woodsmoke on clothing before I ran into a homeless man who was walking the game trail ahead of me.

The window shopping is more feeling the ambiance of an area.

I had no reason to go to the Crip side of Prospect lake the other day, or to explore downtown Colorado Springs seediest corners. I had a desire to feel, to use my senses and I did.

Is it dangerous to wander homeless camps and back alleys? I don’t know, probably.

Am I learning anything? No. Not really. I am thankful for a reset before I go back to working at the prison. That is where the danger is.

Sometimes your brother in blue will try and cut you when you aren’t paying attention .
