This is from 2003 and a trip made to Yellowstone National Park. Lamar Valley, one of my favorite places in the park.
It was 29 degrees yesterday at 11:00 when I took a walk at the Environmental Learning Center. Beautiful clear blue sky and lots of sunshine. The sunshine was making the trail muddy in places but I also found it quite icy in others. It was good for me physically to experience the cold and get in the exercise. But, more importantly it was good for the much needed reset for my head. I noticed a hawk perched on the top of a tree and waited until I was on his east side to get a photo. When I came to the clearing where I wanted to get a photo I also encountered two does at the base of the tree. They were probably bedded down there and I hated to be the one to disturb them. I grabbed a family photo and headed for the car. It was well worth the effort and time despite the sniffling nose and muddy shoes.
A statue from the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. I discovered this museum while on a walk around my hotel during an overnight back in 2010.
Life always comes out of death. The present rises from the ashes of the past. The future is always possible for those who are willing to re-create it. Joan Chittister
How you see life, depends on your perspective, your angle of view, if something makes no sense, look again with new eyes.
