A Walk Along Lake Winnipeg

Well, I'm back! With a change in pace...I have decided to try this blog again. If you are getting this blog by email, please excuse me for showing up unannounced in your inbox.

You subscribed to me a while back and then I abandoned this blog. Now, I am back and ready to go, at least for now. I will share more of my plans for the blog in the weeks to come but for now, hi again.  I hope we can become re-acquainted. If you are shocked at receiving this email and wish to unsubscribe, I will not be offended whatsoever. I will be sharing my walks with you, with some talk about God and perhaps a bit of cooking. If that appeals to you, stick around. If that doesn't sound like your cup of Red Rose, no problemo.

This was my walk this morning. I had been a bit in the dumps and stayed up all night working on writing-related things. The hidden blessing, of insomnia, though, if you play it right, is that you get to watch the sun rise. I went out at 7:15 but just missed whatever display there might have been for the day. It was still so lovely, though. The water so still it seemed to be an extension of the land.

The hidden beach was there and I could not help but follow its path, a narrow ridge along the rocky shore of Lake Winnipeg. I absolutely adore the rich colours of contrasting browns and blues, with a splash of autumn tree blossoms. I could just eat this up!

And these textures! I can't get enough, to tell you the truth. After feellng in the dumps the last few days, this walk did me good. As Alaniss Morrisette sang, "A Change'll Do You Good." I feel the closest to the God of the Universe during these moments with his creation. I don't know how anyone could hold unto their atheism after spending an hour in the fresh air of his magnificently designed beauty. This truly lifts my spirit to the heavens.  I hope  you have a wonderful day, and get outside, even just for a few minutes!

  1. You live in such a beautiful place! When I once lived on Lake Simcoe I too would go for long walks and it improved my mood immensely. Welcome back to blogging. Nice to see you're back.

    1. Hi Susan! So nice to "see" you here! I hope things are going well for you. Thanks so much for your kind words -- I am glad to be back, too. Although I have been blogging elsewhere, I missed my friends on this blog. Take care.
