Textures come alive in the rain. I thought should I bring my camera, its pouring, I’m glad I did.. I hung the camera inside my vest pulled it out only to get the pictures, and then dropped it back inside under cover. I imagined a quilt of different shades of green using the textures of the plants, leaves, branches.
It was my first time to consciously take a walk in the woods in the rain. I put on my Bogs (wet boots) wore long sleeves, sprayed my hat, scarf, and sleeves with heavy duty insect repellent. yes did my socks and jeans, put on a kind of wet spring type jacket over me and took off. Even brought my walking stick.
I wish there was a way for you to hear the singing of the birds, they were so happy, there was another car that came along so there were other humans about.. but.. none on the boardwalk.. it was glorious. The air was alive with the singing and calling out of the birds… I didn’t see any near or around the water, but I certainly could hear the chatter. With the steady drizzle there were no snakes trying to sun themselves on the boards either.
I feel so blessed to have been given the gift of good health, a way for me to get to these wonderful places, and the incentive to follow the inspirations that come my way.
