Although utterly exhausted from work I decided
to take a short walk around Jacobsburg State Park this afternoon.
It felt like snow as the the air was crisp and cold.
I walked around an abandoned quarry and sat for a while
watching as icicles fell into the dark water, echoing off the slate walls.
Down by the creek I slipped on the muddy bank.
My left hand went out to break my fall and landed in a sticker bush.
I pulled out the thorns, brushed off my muddy bum and turned for home.
Despite the mishaps it felt good to clear my head and breathe the fresh air.
Home to a big lunch then I crawled under the covers for a long nap.
More busy days ahead.
