And thus ends my three days of recreation. I took kind of a drive today for my final outing. I was especially fortunate to have the chance to encounter lots of wildlife. I was able to get lots of kinda sweet pictures. Pictures taken with iPhone or my Canon T1i. (1st three: iPhone. 2nd three: SLR.)
I can’t believe how good these last two days have been for me. I almost feel like I have been sedated. Spending hours alone, but doing productive things (at least, to me). I didn’t expect to appreciate it so much. I find it a challenge to explain. As much as I have enjoyed it, I look forward to getting out and being social again. Maybe I’ll do just that very soon.
After all, I’m super lucky to have the people I do in my life.
I feel fortunate to live where I do. I am close enough to beautiful gardens and places to walk or hike, and in an area where I can find all kinds of amazing foods from almost any genre you can think of. I had tea today at my favorite tea house with a half sandwich (three cheese grilled cheese), and a cup of minestrone soup. Yesterday I had an unbelievable sushi feast with delicious Fuji Apple flavored sake.
I felt like Alice, because this was surely wonderland.
I wished that I didn’t have to leave. When I was here (alone) all afternoon, I was calm. Even happy. A wonderful way to recollect myself. I love that there is a small slice of nature to escape to, not too far from my home. I don’t go nearly as much as I should, but when I do, it’s usually because I absolutely need it.
