Four photos





Things were not going well at home this morning, so I took myself for a walk. I headed down into the woods where Lance and I used to go, traveling the overgrown track on two feet instead of four for the first time. I also hiked off the (un)beaten path and sat on a boulder for while, and was treated with the company of a Spotted Towhee, two lovely little Bewick's Wrens, and a sparrow – Song or Fox, I think. A pair of vultures flew and perched in the middle distance.

The walk didn't fix anything, but it was good to #getoutside.

That's it for now from . . .

Beautiful photos. A walk is good for the soul.

I love the photos and can't get over how much growth you have already! We are still buried under almost 2 feet of snow! YIKES!!! I'm beginning to feel that winter might not ever leave here in New Hampshire... I sooooooo need spring to arrive already. I am starting to worry about the poor birds, there is no where to get nesting materials or food for them right now!

A walk may not fix problems but at least it feeds the soul with the strength and motivation to keep moving forward. I hope your day gets better quickly,
Hugs for now from still way too snowy New Hampshire...

Sometimes "leaving" the scene is the only thing you can do. And getting out to commune with Nature is always good. Hope today improves for you.

It's good to just be a bump on a log once in awhile. Especially one with a camera. Lovely pics!

Nature can always make you feel at least a little bit better. Hope things smooth out - sending a big hug your way.

We are buried under snow so seeing your green woods is a delight. I especially love the little mushrooms - they look like little fairy lights. I'm glad you had the opportunity to get out for the walk and enjoy the birds and breathe the fresh air. I always enjoy a good walk, except when it's minus 20 and blowing a gale...

Yes, a walk helps almost everything. Fixes nothing but gives you some mental space (even if only for the walk time itself.). I had a friend who was widowed earlier in life. She joined a widows group. The group leader suggested walking. She lived near a lake - about 3 miles around. She walked it every day. It didn't seem to help so she reported that back. The leader said she hadn't walked enough. She started walking around the lake twice - that was 6+ miles, every single day. (yikes) It started to help. She kept it up and found it was the only thing that helped. AND she lost a ton of weight and got healthier as well.

Keep walking.

There is never a day so bad that a short walk can't at least help.

It always helps to get outside! I find it helps reset the brain (and often the attitude).
