Such a beautiful sunny winter day today, the Winter Solstice. Temps were about -3 this morning when I left the house. A perfect crisp winter day.
|Animal tracks, I’m guessing fox, down on the shore by the old beaver lodge…|
|The now frozen Burntside Lake looking out from one of the vistas on the Passi Road up the Echo Trail…|
Sometimes, the aging cynic in me wants to fight the cold and the snow as if it is an enemy, intentionally engaging in antagonizing me… But on a day like this, just driving to a job-site up the Echo trail, if I can just stop a moment and breathe…
|Another view from one of the overlooks on the Passi Road as I was driving to work this morning…|
|There are worse commutes, I suppose…|
We can complain… I certainly can, I do it all the time, the world is not a perfect place by a long shot… I don’t know why things happen as they do. When the time comes for me, you can bet I will have some questions to ask, but in the mean time, I need to try to focus on quieting my mind, finding the peace, taking the moments one by one…
