Aggghhh I did something today that I’ve never done before.. I intentionally climbed over a barrier that was put there to prevent people from going on the boardwalk. I knew the risk.. I was told, the sign was there to protect the people responsible for the conservation area. Anyone who goes beyond the barriers is doing so at their own peril….. the weather has been cold but so far there is no snow and ice on the boardwalk, I had my walking stick… big waterproof boots … and I knew I would be extremely careful.
Can one capture “cold” I tried…the ice is forming on the water, it is still open in some areas… I have walked the trail in the winter before, I’m not sure why they have shut it down this winter. I will enquire. For sure.. I had the place to myself.. only met someone when I was on the trail that leads back to the parking area.
I wanted to be alone. I wanted to experience the quiet and the complete solitude of being in the open space of the bog that would be devoid of other humans. I wanted to hear my own thoughts, to listen to the distant sounds of the world happening around me, but not near me. My wish was granted.

I could see the change in the surface of the water–some of it was frozen, some still liquid. Your comment about not overdoing it was right on….I did overdo it tonight and am back on my oxygen, but feeling like it’s going to be o.k. I really must restrain myself from doing things without thinking.
lol that challenge will always be there… but … you can do it… you have a wonderful willingness in you to change.. so.. you will.. just stay focused on the moment, on the now… xxxo
I have to chuckle here … I was just telling another friend that I was surprised to see the end of yet another year flying at me. I told her I would try to slow down and watch this next year as it came around to me! LOL One day at a time…
it is important to keep the “happy smiles” in our day to day. waves hello across the miles.
Your last paragraph really resonates with me as long as one stays safe in doing so.
believe me, I was painfully aware that I had to stay safe. thank you! waves across the miles.
Can’t say that I blame you, the craving was real. You kept yourself vigilant and all’s well that ends well. 🙂
What lengths ..for a good picture… need to readdress some actions tho’ . good morning… waves a hearty good morning…
What an adventure, and what a wise quote. And I can “see” the cold, almost feel it.
good morning Irene… when I look at the clear blue sky, I smile. today it is pouring rain, steady relentless pouring… if the weather continues to dip, it will change to snow… Dec. is just around the corner … waves a good day to you!!
