Morning Walk

To my companions in the blogging world, I apologize in advance for the delay in responding to your lovely comments. I’m touched with your thoughtfulness and there is a few things I need to attend to in my real life.

I will reply soon, but until then I wanted to share the walk I went on this morning.

I brought with me Julien Matei’s words:

The less we live, the more we talk.

This pond behind is my oldest daughter’s middle school.  It was a beautifully crisp autumn morning.  Chilly enough to invigorate without making me regret not bringing a hat.

It was about here that I took a spill.  Because I was looking through my camera and walking, I stepped into a hole and twisted my ankle.  The next moment I was on the damp ground with a searing pain in my ankle.  A practical lesson of the hazards of not being mindful, for sure.

There were scores of Canadian geese, ducks and seagulls.

If you get to know me, you’ll know what affection I have for birds.

Beauty and grace in motion.

Without any special tricks, my DSLR lens created this delicious sunburst pattern.

When I go out in nature to capture moments in time, I come back just bursting with joy.

And this time, a stiff ankle.

And well worth it.

I’ll be back soon, my friends.

Have a beautiful day.


About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again
