as I walk in the woods

Thank you 🙂
Thank you, yes exactly. And a lovely way to phrase it. 🙂
Thank you, Neo. A walk in the woods is overdue at this end 🙂
Likely so, Rachael. It surely is at this end but, perhaps the prairie will have to continue to suffice, barely. Your picture reminded me so much of home.
Where is home, Neo ? If you don’t mind me asking.
No, of course not. I grew up i Northwest Indiana, my Dad had about five acres of second growth timber (and more around it) four miles from town. All farming around us. Perfect place for a boy that really didn’t much care for other people, even then. I still miss the land, it was heartbreakingly lovely in all seasons, although not so much the people. 😉
I get a real sense of your love for it – and I understand your nostalgia. I have it too. At least we can hold these places in our hearts 🙂
That is, I believe, because first and most importantly, you are a very perceptive lady, and secondarily, I cheated, I know a bit of your background, and know it isn’t all that different from mine. 🙂
🙂 I hope you’re having a peaceful weekend, Neo.
🙂 So far so, good Rachael. But for some reason I overslept and am just getting started. Have a good afternoon/evening now. 🙂
time quivering and collapsing into drifts of snow…very intriguing and lovely, Rachale. xxo
Glad you liked this one. I wanted to give ‘time’ a persona – an existence even – and then to show it, ie. linear time, could very easily be gone. xx
Erm..that’s **Rachael**. Pressed “send” precipitously–sorry!
Don’t you have those moments where you know that your soul belongs in woods, forests, copses and coves, and that all this other running around stuff on roads and to jobs and in society, is all just a front?
Yes I do. I know I belong in the wild places. It feels like all the whizzy stuff many of us do is has no purpose other than to distract us what really matters. Getting the balance right is pretty hard, isn’t it? 🙂
Surely! But at least I will always have this spirit inside….
Hi Rachel, Thanks for following my blog. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the blog.
It’s my pleasure, Michael. I look forward to our dialogue.
