Wednesday Afternoon


There’s a light snow coming down today and I decided that this was a good day for a walk along the creek just because I needed to get out of the house and away from a number of things on my mind.  There’s something calming walking by yourself while it snows.  It feels good for a kid from Iowa can get out and about and try to forget about life’s problems for a while.

Walking along the creek is a throw back for me when I was a kid and I would be exploring the woods, the creeks and the area around where I grew up.  It got to be a challenge to see how close I could get to nature without it catching me.  I’d like to see that I became an excellent woodsman but the truth to be told I was caught more times than I could shake a stick at.  But it was all fun.
