See the forest.

Another shot from yesterday’s walk through the woods.   I found myself literally surrounded by trees as far as my eye could see — much like I feel with my todo lists from work and home.   It was a reminder to try to keep the big picture in perspective, and not get hung up on the little things.

Home.

Found today on a walk through the woods.

“May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
 and all your heart might desire.” — Irish blessing

100% chance of woo hoo!

I’m very thrilled to see the weather forecast for the next few days.  FINALLY some not-rainy days!

I’m looking forward to spending some time outside!  This morning I got an early start… went for a long hike in the woods.   This shot shows the just risen sun peeking through the tree trunks at the horizon.

And in the middle of my hike I came upon this tranquil view.  Very pretty.

60 years on.

I finally got a chance to go outside today! I went for a walk this afternoon after my last meeting. There is a new park with a huge network of trails through towering trees about a mile walk from my mom’s house. It was gorgeous. This cut log was laying next to the trail. I stopped counting at 60 rings. Thank you log, I now have Elton John’s 60 Years On ringing in my head. Now you do too.

A shot of the beautiful canopy … I like the glowing green of the leaves in this shot.

I drove jake here tonight and we cooked dinner and ate with mom. Then he played guitar for us for a while. He’s very good. He reminded me that I had taught him the basics many years ago. Very sweet.
