Life moves slowly in the mountains

On mountain time

Living by a clock with no hands

Or no clock at all

It becomes a slow-moving day in the higher elevation

Slower as you move up the mountain

Where projects get done when they get done

The body naturally relaxes and automatically transitions

Men grow beards and let their hair grow long

Levi’s and mountain boots are in

Mountain boots are worn all the time, even to bed

Some mountain people never take their boots off at all

Whatever you wear or don’t wear is in style

Dogs practice nightly and are known far and wide as neighborhood barking quartets

Everyone is on their own time

It’s the law of the mountains

It’s the mountain way

I haven’t become a mountain woman in every sense of the word

I do love being retired in the mountains

With or without mountain boots
