Tailgating Are Special
A picnic or tailgate gathering is
special. Just opening the picnic basket or dropping the tailgate,
just lifts our spirits. Eating outdoors, be it a hillside, pasture,
woods, seaside or our own backyard, just makes the food tastes
It is great to be outdoors enjoying
some of my favorite meals. It is the camaraderie. They feel like
family. Some of my fondest picnics were the remote places we
gathered. The more remote I find the picnic spot, the more fun is
the picnic. The outdoors allows our human spirits to soar. Maybe it
is the sky, the wind, or the trees. It is that special mystical
experience only a picnic can give the human spirit.
When I return home
from a picnic, my spirit feels ten feet tall and it feels like
Superman. Moreover, yes, I feel like pulling off Superman�s cape,
spitting into the wind, and definitely feel like pulling the mask
off the Lone Ranger. I see picnics as a mystical, magic tour. It is
places that capture our heart and gives us new life and new meaning.
It is not just for me, but also for the ones I love.
