Heart Sighting

I walked with new enthusiasm this afternoon; it really helps to have the proper kit! It’s very cold outside but now that I have a full month of daily walks under my belt, I decided it’s high time to start outfitting…

Winter on the River

I am a self-confessed Hermit who has to remind herself to say yes to people, adventure, and life. It snowed a little last night (for the first time in 2 years), so it was especially tempting to stay curled up…

Magic Happens

I wrote a silly little post about going walking in glorious sunshine this morning and seeing a ridiculously big and sunny bus parked on a very small road, but I didn’t feel quite right about hitting that no-going-back publish button….

The Rosy Glow of Casual Conversation

Our drab weather continues, though it isn’t quite as bitter outside today. Every dog walker in town seemed to be out, and everyone seemed chatty, which was nice. I love the quirkiness of conversations with casual strangers, people you don’t…
