The Logical Heart Knows Best

I finally went for a long walk, and the foliage was stunning. The colors were so vibrant and glowing, otherworldly; they looked painted with a luminous quality, the photos don’t do it justice. I haven’t been on those paths since early April. I’m now returning to my normal route. I feel like I’ve been let out of captivity. I’m so grateful for my health. I will never take it for granted again. I am diligently keeping up my healthy nutrition and wellness practices. I always wear a mask and socially distance when out and about. I do not want to tempt fate and get the virus a second time.

I finished watching My Octopus Teacher, whoa; it was amazing! It was so beautiful and touching, got me all verklempt. What a treat to see their relationship unfold and how it transformed his life. Incredible!

I also learned about how intelligent and magnificent these beautiful creatures are. I loved how she camouflaged herself. I didn’t know they could change their shape and colors so significantly. I didn’t know about their life cycle until now, either. Next, I am gonna watch Kiss the Ground. It looks awesome, like it will uplift and give me hope we can turn this devastation of our world around.

I really don’t want to move from here. We love Colorado, but if there’s going to be huge wildfires like this as the new norm, then I think it’s best if we relocate. I’m hoping somehow there will be a way to heal the planet and soon!

Nothing’s grabbing me to write about. Oh, I saw a snake on my walk! I was up on the hill and it slithered in front of me across the trail and hid in the grass. I took a photo, but all you can see is its back end.

Cool, cool, cool! I’m glad I was looking where I was stepping 🙂 I saw bunnies and lots of birds. The grasshoppers were gone. It’s really dry and dusty on the hill. The sky was so blue and clear with white streaks and puffs of clouds, no haze at all, ahhh, that’s more like it. The air quality held out long enough for me to enjoy a stunningly beautiful walk. Later this evening it worsened to unhealthy again.

I’ve already completed my five rounds of PT exercises today, yay! Got my dancing done, too. Now, all that’s left is guitar and drawing. Then if there’s still time I will do some more learning in the video marketing course. My thank you note is on the table with a pen on top waiting for me, then there are five more I want to write 🙂 I’m so thankful for all the magnificent people who’ve made such a big impact in my life and in the world.

I’m just blabbing on, so I will say ttfn 🙂
