this post. I've gone into "scan mode" here. Many people conflate the meaning of "scan" with that of "skim," incorrectly. Scan means to examine intently, skim, to examine at a glance, superficially. Here, I'm amused by how fixated I apparently am on the rocks. I love this state of mind. I'm simultaneously alert to my total environment and focused intensely on a very narrow aspect of it. I think geology is about as close to nirvana as one can get. With hammers.
