(Re) Birthday – Wyeth Walk #210
I was very excited to make it back to my winter creek today – I hadn’t been able to make it through the overgrowth since May, and in April and May it had become increasingly difficult. Enough of the overgrowth has died back that I was able to bushwhack my way through on a deer trail. I ended up with burrs all over my clothes and rustled up a family of deer, but it was fun to trailblaze and infinitely satisfying to soak in the sounds of the trickling creek once I got there.
This is the longest I’ve gone since January without my walks. Life is ever flowing, and it’s interesting to me to observe how what I thought were habits set in stone must change and adapt in order to stay. I loved seeing this little flame of a baby leaf to remind me that how far off track I get or how many months it takes to bushwhack back to the creek, each day is an opportunity for rebirth.
