Sharing A Meander, Recorded in Pixels — Come Along, Will You?
The October morning was drab and grey. Thick clouds hid the sun. The air, moist and heavy, was cool. Stepping onto the path, I declared this walk an exploratory venture — there’d be no rushing. I’d not been on this path since summer’s peak. Mother Nature is in the process of shedding her summer attire, recycling her bounty, and preparing for winter’s unwind.
I’d not be stopping to smell any flowers today, as they’d all gone to rest on the forest floor, but I opened my eyes to search. I’m open. What will I find?
There was a palette of color waiting to be discovered amidst the browns and greys. My ears too, were on high alert. The feathered had much to say and the occasional scurry of chipmunk or squirrel feet could be heard in the accumulating leaf clutter, and upon the tree trunks.
Want to meander a bit through a forest mixed with evergreen and deciduous charm?
Beauty shared brings me joy. C’mon.
When’s the last time you meandered? Focused on the now? Quieted your thoughts? Marveled at your surroundings?
So often we look for the secret to life. On my meander, I felt like I’d found it.
