Descent Is Faster and More Enjoyable than the Climb

Go figure, it’s more fun (and much easier) to come down the mountain than it is to climb up. Yesterday (Sunday), Pops and I took a couple hours to climb and explore a nearby trail. It was pretty pathetic going up…

Walk a hundred yards, huff and puff for five minutes… walk 50 yards, huff and puff… walk 200 yards then get winded and have to stop for five minutes. Needless to say, it took awhile to get up. We walked up the trail — a fairly comfortable incline, despite the “huff and puff” episodes — for just over an hour and a half. I took photos (of course) and added them to my Colorado Photo Blog. The sights were really nice going up…

It’s a Great Day in Kentucky!

Life has been so hectic lately, it’s hard to FIND the roses, much less stop for a little sniff. But, I think I’ve decided that life will only slow down when I force that to happen. I’ve also decided that it has very little to do with outside forces and events, and much to do with my own decisions and choices. So, I’m deciding to slow down a bit. Yeah, yeah, I know… I’ve said it before. Only time will prove my earnestness this time…

Karma – Comes Around Again (And Bites Me in the *Ahem*)

Today was one of those days when I was able to completely shock and disappoint myself with a totally judgmental attitude. I hate when that happens. It’s been awhile (thankfully), but I’m apparently still subject to such unexpected and, well, horribly judgemental views from time to time (unfortunately).

But, this provided a perfect opportunity for my belief in Karma to be reaffirmed…

It Feels Like Winter

Cold weather makes me take a moment to think about life. Life is good. This morning, when I got up (from a toasty-warm bed), it was cold in the cabin. Quite a chill hung in the air.

Then my husband got up and said "Want a fire? Are you cold?" and immediately began the wood-burning stove ritual to get a blazing fire roaring.

Life is good.

Leap and the net will appear…

The first portion of a new year is a wonderful thing to me. It really is. I know you can "turn a new page" or "get a fresh start" at any point in your life, on any day, but there is something magical about a new YEAR — and I cling to the theme of rebirth and renewal and a fresh start…every year…

Feeling the need to reflect.

I guess it’s because the weather has started to turn chilly, it seems that on a regular schedule… I start re-evaulating my life, where I am, where I want to be, and how I need to approach getting there. I also think about the world, politics, privacy and how all aspects of my world tend to collide.
