Our “decorated fern,” on a misty Dec. morning.
The Weekend Coffee Share is hosted at parttimemonsterblog.com, and since I am being ambitious about a new year and looking back at what was good in 2016, let’s do something different and just walk to the coffee shop! It’s right down the road. The sweet, cream laden latte will be our reward for the exercise! Even have a danish if you so desire!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about things that happened for me this year, about how I got inspired, and maybe, I’d show you some pictures of some my best morning walks. The year started with me in a sad and anxious state, but that’s a whole other story. For now I’ll just tell you that there was, and always is, light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. I’d started seriously writing in Nov., 2015 and just kept on, despite, and to the betterment of, my emotions. Along that and other tools in my kit, these morning walks became a practice of greeting each new day as a miracle, for one cannot fathom just how many scientific feats have conspired to bring about a rising sun. God and Science are things I can’t fathom yet affect me in so many ways. I pray that I will never take such a miracle as a new day for granted, no matter the weather, and that the New Year enables me with the ability to continue enjoying it. I wish the same for you, my friend! All photographs presented here were taken in 2016 and are my own, representing my morning walks or meditations with my coffee. Happy New Year!
Many of these morning walks were inspired by my dog anxiously pawing me or staring me down for a walk outside. And look at the beauty I have witnessed because of it! Other photos are from morning beach walks in the summer and my morning view with coffee in Warm Springs, Ga. Each photo here represents my area in the Southeast and our weather patterns, from sunny to foggy to post-Hurricane Matthew. I hope you have enjoyed these glimpses! I hope you’ll walk with me again sometime in 2017, and please forgive what the humidity will do to your hair. 🙂
