In the Mist
It was chilly and misty this morning, when I took my walk in the hills. I daydreamed, set up my plan of action for the day, decided what to make for dinner, took a lot of pictures, thought about jewelry designs. I love walking alone, sorting things out, listening to my feet as they beat out a rhythm, my breath adding a layer to the march. Walking adds an element of peace in a world that feels so rushed and if you listen to the news, it feels so broken. Things feel so whole and perfect in the natural world, as it should be. When I'm out with Jo it makes me feel balanced and able to accept whatever a day might bring. I can always dig deep and remember things like.... watching the coyote watch us, then as if to let us know we were no big deal he turned to leave but before he did he hiked his leg and marked a clump of tall grass. I have a file of vignettes in the folds of my mind, remembrances from my walks, today it was the neat and tidy tattings small spiders created, hanging heavy now like damp laundry.
