Some days it is more difficult than others to go on my morning walk. Today was one of those times. The sky was overcast, it had been raining, and more was in the forecast. Still, I decided to take advantage of the break in the weather and keep my commitment. I don’t know from where the reluctance comes because getting outside and having time with my thoughts is always pleasurable. It’s where a lot of my best ideas have been generated. Still, there’s a voice that tells me it’s OK to take a day off. Given that I know how much benefit I’ll derive from the outing, it should be much easier to tell that voice, “Shut up!”
Today, health and creativity triumphed. I found this composition just a couple of blocks from our home. The rain made everything glisten and the overcast sky made the red winch really pop. A lot of things had to line up for this image to get created and it all started with honoring the commitment I made to myself.
