Today I played in Ribbet with this image. It is so hot outside it is like an oven. I’m beginning to feel very restless and fed up. First the icy cold prevented me from doing much of anything outside. Then the torrential rains had me running in between my house and out in my gardens to open them for the Season. I felt like I was running a race. Now this heat has me again inside. I will not even attempt to get into a forest, it is just that hot. I had such plans for this Summer. This weather has me frustrated!
I have one other picture I could show you from my walk two days ago. I had captured a Great Blue Heron after I startled her. I actually was able to practice getting her in midair but every single image is not presentable. That moment was my low point in that walk. Why I did not bring my long lens is beyond me. Life in general lately has me just shaking my head.
As I told my sister I feel as if I could just jump on a horse to see Great Adventures. My reality is the weather has not been cooperating, I have outgrown my camera yet because Canon is lagging its feet, I hesitate to buy another one just in case the one I really want comes out over this Summer, I have a few problems with our cats, and it just seems like the excitement for life has somehow left. Something in me screams to spread my wings yet life itself seems to be holding me back.
So I suppose my Life Lesson is to learn to love being exactly where I am and to trust that this is happening for a reason. I finally have gotten caught up with my gardens except for adding manure but even with this area of my life, I honestly don’t want to do this either … I just want to get up on that horse and gallop away. Huh. How do ya like that?
