Yesterday afternoon I needed to get out. I’m sure a lot of you have had the feeling that the walls are starting to press inward, not much, just enough to make the spaces inside feel smaller, and tighter, and the air a bit thicker…
So, in order to avoid being squashed to a pulp, I decided to jump into my car and escape to the farm! 🙂
Sometime Wednesday night, it had started to rain – a steady, heavy rain that continued well into the morning. I was completely in my element! Then the clouds slowly started to lift, and the sun played hide-and-seek for a while until it got bored and decided to completely show itself.
By the time I arrived at the farm, it was sunny, but with a lovely, fresh breeze blowing – always a great aid if you want to clear some cobwebs from your mind! So, I parked my car under a tree, grabbed my constant companion (also known as a camera!) and set off on foot.
I tried my best to look at everything I saw as if it was a potential subject for a great picture – the grass blowing in the breeze, the trees, the sky, the insects, my boots and even some cow dung! 😉 And once again, it ended with a few hits, and quite a few misses.
So here is the story of my afternoon of physical and mental therapy, in pictures.
I took a whole lot more pictures, but once again I think some of you are already yawning and falling asleep, so I’ll be sneaky and work some more pictures into future blogs!
And finally I have to say that my wild therapy, or maybe more aptly ‘therapy in the wild’, did wonders for my soul. I have new courage, more patience (something I am always in short supply of – you can ask my kids!! 🙂 ), and I am looking forward to the weekend, and I hope you are too!
Until we chat again – have a grrrrreat weekend, be blessed! 🙂
