a happy walk in the woods

28 May

Went for a nice long walk in the woods this morning with the sunshine. I meandered down near the creek and smiled at all of the little green buds poking up everywhere. The quiet babbling chatter of the moving water and several melodic birds calling to their feathered friends were the perfect soundtrack. It was great to start the day getting lost in both nature and my thoughts.  Coming to the end of the trail, I couldn’t believe what I saw: one of the “Half Full” tags I had hung back in January when I did a little art installation out in the forest using TheSecondMagpie’s mini positivity pieces. Nearly three months later the little guy is still there; although he is slightly rippled with a tear in his upper right corner, twirled string and the loss of part of his U, his bright and cheerful message still speaks loud and clear. Funny that even though I’m the one who hung that tag out there, its presence almost 100 days later surprised me and made me grin. What a lovely start to the day.
