Doing your work is messy. It’s not for the faint of heart. Fluids are everywhere. Tears and sweat. But it’s worth the pain. The rehashing of the scars and resetting of the bones. In order to heal.
Some days are better than others. It is not all grey clouds. What has helped me is appreciation. Morning ritual. Cognitive behavior to retrain the insane of the brain. Most of the time if I can keep this train of thought the cloud of grey comes to pass within a few minuets. Life goes on.
Last thought before put the pen down, and this one is really important.
The things people don’t really talk about and keep buried in that little black box… those are the most important mementos of growth.
Sunshine and green trees are all that I need to be enticed outdoors. Today, the sun is shining and the air is slightly more humid for my taste. There is a breeze which energizes me with each step and I find myself taking out my camera.
This is Soren Johnsen, and I welcome you to MoonandStoneCraft.
Sorry I have been away for a while. You know how life is and all, you start one project and find yourself falling down a rabbit hole of unlimited possibilities.
Anyways I am back, and I took some interesting pictures on my walk today.
I started my adventure down the Bolin Creek Trail. I have walked this trail so many times that I have lost track of count. Today was a little different.
Trail markers are not usually unique, in fact they are kind of expected for any adventure. The trail leads form one side of town to the other. My mind was in that state of mind, whee it really needed some nature love, and that is when I found them. The messages, painted on rocks. Words from the heart that flowed down the path of the trail.
I am calling this chapter Black Heart for obvious reasons. I hope you enjoy.
I hope you found this virtual nature walk enchanting. Perhaps even inspirational.
