Anyone want to go for a walk after dinner? How ’bout down to the lake?

Ripples in sepia

Ripples in blue

 

Reeds in Lake Superior

Reeds at sunset

Didn’t we have a nice walk down to the lake?  Didn’t we catch up on our lives?  Didn’t we connect? 

Aren’t we glad that dog didn’t attack us?

Wasn’t the evening beautiful? 

Didn’t we enjoy the way the waves lapped against the shore?  The way the inland tides receded out, then blocked our path along the lake?

Don’t we feel closer to one another?

Won’t the memories of our evening walk along the lake nourish us through the upcoming year? 

Will we remember our walk years later?

Will we remember the way the wind blew gently across the lake, rippling into our hearts?

Will we ever forget?

    Those are the kind of things that people always remember, that families hold dear to their heart forever. Make those memories whenever you can…they are so important!

    Kathy —

    I absolutely love to walk. Its a passion with me. Where you live … at least this time of year … appears VERY appealing to a dedicated walker. Now, in February … I dunno … 🙂

      You know, Judson, February walks CAN be challenging around here! But this time of year is spectacular. Although sometimes you have to walk really fast to beat the mosquitoes and black flies. LOL!

    Mmmm… there are so many memories we could all have if we only held on to what we experience on a daily basis. I wonder what it is that makes one memory more special than another, makes one stick in the mind and another not?

    Despite having living in Wales for three years now, I still more vividly remember a holiday we took in a different part of Wales from where we live (and before we moved to this country) and standing amongst miles and miles of heather on the top of a hill (may have been a mountain we drove there)

    • Kathy says:

      You raise such an interesting question, Ms. Bird! I think so often we remember the energy-laden memories, the unexpected ones, the crazy ones, the ones where our heart beat faster or where things looked different than usual for some reason. Perhaps?

      Interesting that you have only lived in Wales for three years. It’s so interesting when we’ve lived in different places and can compare…

Thank you for reading. May you be blessed in your life...may you find joy in the simple things...
