Whew! What a week.
Wifi network down. Technology gremlins attacking. Fuzzy hopping with excitement on his 30-day blog tour, meeting so many lovely people. And Sweet T's e-book conversion continues to evolve as tech experts work miracles. Plus, it's Labor Day weekend in the US, and we're supposed to rest from our toil.
So, I REALLY need to Zen-out and find my happy place. Lucky for me, it's right outside my door.
Join me for a walk on the greenway? I’d love your company.
Our suburban house on a quarter-acre lot backs up to a greenway, a series of interconnecting walking paths through the wooded watershed leading to a park and nature preserve. Even though we live in a city, it feels as if we're in the country.
Let’s hop on the trail here.
Hard to believe these peaceful woods
are part of a U.S. metro area of a million people.
Getting happy with my imagination now:
Doesn't this old log look like a Triceratops head?
Imagination is everywhere.
Like building a river of swirly stones.
Beauty is crafted
from everyday elements.
Oops! Watch your head on that limb!
No worries about stepping on snakes today.
It's not hot enough for reptiles to slither onto the path
to cool themselves on concrete.
Plus, copperheads stay close to the creek ... I think.
Shady nook to rest and contemplate.
Thoughtful hydration station for pooches.
Shhhh! Stay very quiet.
We may spot shy woodland fairy princesses.
This tree wants to scurry away
on human-hand-looking roots.
(Hmmm. That could be the start of a good story line.)
Almost done. How about a short cut up the hill?
Back home again.
... Ready to tackle the world again. (Or at least start writing the next chapter after the weekend.)
I feel so much better. Hope you do, too. Thanks for joining me.
Here's wishing you'll always find the way to your happy place. If you care to share in the comment section below, please tell about what you do to de-stress.
