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.
