For a summer day this would be nice, 88° (31°) and not a cloud in the sky. But considering it’s nearly the middle of October, seriously? I shouldn’t complain too much, at least there’s a breeze blowing. And the Good Lord has left a few leaves on the trees to provide some shade. But ain’t that how life is, there are just enough good days to make up for the bad.
For the first time in months I went down to the state park. And much to my surprise there’s still water in the lake and even a few water lilies still blooming. To be honest, it was quite a meditative few moments. Being out there in the quiet, with hardly a sound but the wind and the water.
Far too long I’ve been cooped up in this house waiting. Waiting for cooler weather, waiting to feel better, waiting for just one break. But it’s time to quit waiting and start doing. Yes, I may be bound by my physical circumstance, but that has never stopped me before. It’s time to breathe deeply the breath Mother Earth gives and to open my eyes to what I can, instead of what we cannot do. You see, we have but one life. Maybe it’s time to stop waiting and start doing what we can. For the benefit of ourselves and the world around us.
