Yesterday, November 30, it was 73 degrees. Beautiful, sunny and windy, I still managed to grumble inside about being ready for cooler weather. When it does turn cold (like today) I’ll probably grumble that I’m ready for sunshine and warmth.
Anyway, yesterday was a perfect day to go for a walk and test out my new Fitbit and iPhone 6+!
My Fitbit goal is to walk 10,000 steps a day. I walked 11,000 yesterday, 8,000 of which were at the park.
And how did the iPhone 6+ work? Here’s a sampling, along with some thoughts on (human) nature:
Seeing the thorns on these and other branches made me think about all the ways we protect our tender selves.
We came upon this group of trees, and I didn’t think too much about it until I noticed the exposed roots on the other side.
Then, I thought about how complex, even tangled, we are beneath the surface, about how little we know about someone. Beneath his skin. Behind those thorns.
Sometimes, that feels lonely.
Finally, I took these photos, grateful for the beautiful light cast by the warm, glorious sun.
