a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

My Evening Stroll...

Too hot to walk in the middle of Saturday, I waited til it was less hot. A few dogs joined me and we made a circle through woods and fields and back home again.
Ki-Anne insisted on bringing her football.
Being dusk, the calves eyes reflected the flash.
Please note the very present yellow canine blur on the right.
She left her foot ball on the terrace as she ran to the cattle.
We found wild berries ripening.
Dark almost caught me.
Once again the land renewed my spirit,
reminding me why I am here.

You know Gail, you're right. The land can renew one's spirit- thanks for that reminder. I think I'll go out to the sticks and renew my spirit today as well.

There is nothing like a nice walk through nature's wonders to renew faith in mankind and make me feel whole again.
Thanks for letting me go along with you.

I have found that so true and utilize it anytime I can. Such a precious gift that nature is to give so much and let us receive.

You're lucky to be able to go for a walk through nature like that at the drop of a hat. How I envy you. My dog would have a blast. I would have a blast.
