Well, we’re getting blasted with snow… and with a screen name like WinterWoman, you can bet I’m pretty happy about that. My dog loves snow, too, so the two of us headed out to tromp in the woods this afternoon.
Bergman Park sits at the top of a hill and the wind whips across like crazy, bitter and biting. In winter, the park road is closed. It’s a five or ten minute walk from the parking lot to the protection of the woods. Today, I nearly turned back. Twice. But I pushed on, remembering that if I could just get to the path, all would be well.
No matter which way I turned, there was a scene more beautiful than the last… and I wondered… how can that be? I am reminded of the Navajo chant:
With beauty, may I walk.
With beauty before me, may I walk.
With beauty behind me, may I walk.
With beauty above me, may I walk.
With beauty all around me, may I walk.
So I walk…
