Meanderings on writing, reading, walking, bicycling, and life
On Today’s Walk: Perspective
Lately, I’ve been pretty exhausted by my job and things. Stuff. Events. Tasks. Overthinking. Worry.
Normally I work Tuesday evenings. But I had some vacation time to use, so I’m able to blog instead. I couldn’t have better timed my ask for random hours off. Gorgeous evening for walking and trying to focus on the miracle that is every day nature.
Amazing how life can look so different if you change your vantage point. Perspective is a heck of a thing.
I live in Missouri, a more beautiful place than many realize. I love writing, reading, walking, bicycling, and making lists. I’ve written poetry since I was seven. A few years ago I branched out into short fiction and memoir pieces. I also perpetually have a novel in progress. My brain pursues ideas at a brisk pace, wandering all over the map. This blog represents one of my efforts to keep up with it.

Thank you for the reminder to “stop and smell the roses.” I, too, find myself spinning out with overwhelm. Nature always brings me back to homeostasis; the water and trees and flowers and birds seem unperturbed by all our human doings. Thanks for sharing your perspective—I so needed it. Love you, Ida.
