With other errands and exploring over the past two days, this morning it was time for a hike. I needed to get close to nature. I needed to escape the man constructed world of easy living -- cars, air conditioning and mega-stores for every possible need. Or want.
Half way through the hike, there was a small stream. I considered crossing the stream on rocks. When I put my foot on the first rock, it rocked. With my focus/balance problems I would end up getting my feet wet. Or perhaps just fall in. So I decided to just wade through the ankle deep water.
Along the trail I have the pleasure of noting the trees and bushes. Occasionally I will be startled by a lizard going through dead leaves. First reaction it must be a snake.
A high spot on the trail will mean a view of that man constructed world in the distance.
The beauty of the natural world is there even as nature recycles.
Soon I was back to where I started.
That was great! A hike was needed to get away from a world created by man.
