No matter how stressed I am, a walk in nature seems to calm me. With the beginning of a work year (I live on the educational calendar), renovations and much more, a walk was just what I needed.
Near the parking lot, these grasses swayed in the wind. They grow tall enough to hide the cars.
We walked down to see the river. There is something calming about watching the water. The sun was dancing on the water.
The duck seen at the top of this post made quite a display as it spread out its feathers.
Here it is in another pose. Funny how this kind of walk slows down my gait as I stop to notice life around me. It may not be good for my heart (in cardio terms) but it is oh so good for my heart. David Suzuki talks about how important it is to spend time in nature.
The colours, the sounds all contribute to a sense of well-being. Time for me to get out again!
