Day 29 – Down to the Wire…

I began my 31 Day Writing Challenge when I was visiting family in Carson City, NV. During the month I walked, wrote, had friends visit me, I visited friends and enjoyed the glorious light and colors. Now at the end of the month, the colors are fading, the light is dimming and there’s a melancholy feeling in my bones. I’m not quite ready to say good-bye to October, regardless of what the calendar says. I’m not ready for the time-change tonight. I’m not ready and still, those things will happen whether I am ready or not.

Maxwell Trail, Fort Collins ColoradoToday’s walk was around a lake and through the trees. The sky was clear, blue and wide open. By the end of my walk, I had my jacket off and my t-shirt was the perfect thing for me.

Walking is really what helps to keep my spirits up when the lights go down. Movement, fresh air, scenic views or just different sights help the walk fly by.

Walking for me is like brushing my teeth or making my bed. Schedule it, do it, get it done and my day is complete.

Good night to one and all. I’ll chat with you tomorrow!

Ever have those days when you don’t have a topic but you committed to writing so then you decide to post a photo instead? Well, good, because today is one of those days.

I’m including some photos of a drive I took last week on Interstate 80 to Nevada. Most of the time, the drive was stunning. The mountains and the highway were intermingled and it was difficult to drive and not stop the car to take photos at every turn…

I adore mountains and their strength, patience and spirituality joined me for much of the 1000+ miles. Some people align with rivers or oceans, others connect with fire or clouds…

I have a relationship with mountains.

And  you? Do you have this affinity with something, some place  or someone?
