Default A SAP Story

Watched one of these modern short movies. It was I thought a story on the gathering of sap in the making of New England maple syrup. No, it was something old for me; sitting in a tree stand for hours, watching nothing for hours and waiting for a deer to appear.

It was a film on the dropping of sap into a glass jar for nearly an hour. Drip, drop. Watching sap drip for a hour from the tree into the jar. It reminded me a sitting in a tree stand. Watching the smallness of boredom. Waiting for a deer, while hardly moving at all.
After about five minutes, it became a contest of hardly moving - in a tree stand. I'll have to use the movie for tree stand sitting practice.
Sitting quietly in a tree stand, hardly moving, waiting, looking at nothing of consequence.

Oh, I passed the test. The one I made up of not by hardly moving while sitting in a tree stand. It was a rewarding hour. Knowing how difficult it is for some and me to remain quiet while sitting in a tree stand, waiting for a deer.

drip, drip, the slow movement of sap into a glass jar. Me practicing waiting for a deer.

You would think that after looking the first time at it and replying, you would have been smart enough to not do it again 38mins later!!!!!!! So yes, you should be smarter.
