It's all too easy for days to pass without reflection. It's my hope that through a greater active awareness on each day, that I will be able to consider God's presence in my life and in the world around me. Writing has always been a way for me to round up my thoughts. This blog seems like a good place to park those thoughts for my own benefit as well as the benefit of others. Please take a moment to read what I have written, to offer comments, and to share the ideas with others.

Night and Day
Lake Alpine-Boat launch area across from resort (sort of).
What a difference a day makes! I took a drive up to Lake Alpine today to go for a hike. The weather was perfect (maybe about 80 degrees or so) and there were a fair amount of people there for a Tuesday. I ate my lunch on the shore looking out at the lake. I am happy to say that nothing bit me! On my way back I spotted these two kayakers. They each had a black dog on their boat. The man was exclaiming about a bird he saw, wondering if it was a duck. I was so happy to hear the man and woman sort of chatting back and forth, obviously enjoying things. I feel fortunate to be able to choose the types of activities that I can do and when I want to do them. I am also grateful for being physically fit enough to take this hike. It was 4.2 miles up and down some slopes and over some rocks. Just happy to keep going!
