I took a magical walk today.These things below all happened to me with in the first few minutes.
The first good thing I noticed was how good it felt to walk and move.
The second was that I was crabby, and glad I was going to walk and feel much better by the time I got home.
The third was this bright yellow light above me, soaking into my chest.
The 4th was a contented sigh.
The 5th, via the 4th was realizing I had walked into a cloud of perfume. A myriad of scents, all at once. Or perhaps I was too lost in my head to notice before. Bushes with white or pink flowers, fresh beauty bark, new cedar fence, jasmine, the ocean close at hand, cut grass. All of the things that make spring awesome
The 6th I checked a usual haunt of young deer, smile spreading.
The 7th was walking into the shade of huge, tall trees. Im walking into a cathedral. Realizing that I am insignificant in the best way possible.
The 8th, the grande finale. Walking into the damp shade, I took off my sunglasses and that delicious surprise I always hope for happened. Even though it happens to me regularly, I am always taken aback by it. I stop and let it have its moment, I don't want to steal its thunder. I am surrounded my every single shade of green you can imagine. They all hit me at once, each shade of green distinct in its own modest way. Ivy is a curling combination of sage and emerald. Moss a bright chartreuse. Leaves on trees being backlight by the sun are neon pear, if that makes any sense.
It was a good walk.
