Rambling on Green Trails and Blog Posts
It's getting late, and gravity is pulling on my eyelids... but I wanted to share some pictures of Thetis Lake, a most beautiful, greener than green place that I hiked with my friend and her dog Triscuit today. In the bottom photo, doesn't it look like some glittery mystical creature is hovering just under the surface of the water? Anyway, this is usually a quiet place, but today it seemed as though every dog in Victoria was trouncing along the trails, creating little canine traffic jams every so often. This was positively blissful for Triscuit, as were the muddy streams and mossy off trails. I don't think I have ever known a happier dog. Ever. And that kind of happy is contagious. I am still feeling the effects, hours later.
But I am sleepy too.
It is time to hit the pillows and let go of this perfect Sunday.
I owe you all a visit. You know me...always falling behind. I have come to realise that this is how I live my life. It's not just a blogging thing. I am always connecting and then retreating, never really finding a happy balance, but constantly flowing toward or pulling away from the world. Perhaps that is a kind of balance in itself? I don't know. I do know that I need a lot of down time, a lot of quiet space to recharge my batteries... I just have to make sure I don't cave dwell for too long....for that is not happy-making.
So I will put on my social butterfly wings (mine are removable) and let the breeze carry me in your direction over the next few days.
Happy March, everyone! xo
