It had been a long week of my husband working late almost every night. I was feeling the need to leave the house. Creativity in the form of photography presently calls to me almost every day and if I have to suppress it for too long, I start to feel like I am dying inside. I hear this magnetic vibration pulling force out into nature and adventure. I like this feeling. My soul feels alive in a way I have not felt since I was a teen.
Fortunately for me, the weather gave me a break from the rain, and granted me a beautiful glowing morning on a weekend, no less. I snuck out early and went to Tryon State Park. The light was almost perfect. The rest of the day, I found myself better able to be present with my family, mentally and emotionally.
I wish I could start every day like that, but this was a special day; and the memory of it going right, will stay with me for awhile.
Sometimes I think that what I need is to rest, but this is something that makes me need to rest less. It revives me in a way, no amount of sleep could. It is ironic, that by doing something active, I am actually more rested. It makes me feel better about life. Look at the beauty I noticed. Let me share it with you.
