A Moment


It had been wickedly hot all weekend.

The evening would give us some respite and I’d walk in the shade of the forest to the lake for a dip.

On the way home I wandered a new path that I hadn’t taken the day before.

The wind started whirling around and it felt like a storm was coming in.

The grasses began to dance and swirl around me.

I could hear the crowds at the mountain bike race cheering loudly in town but at the same time I felt the bliss of solitude.

Just me and my camera.

This is that moment.

    I love that feeling of Solitude Bliss! It comes to me each day at one time or another when I am outside in our Woods in Nature. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and gorgeous photos!
