I went for my daily walk this afternoon after another grueling day of phone calls and problem solving. Today was the day that with every one positive encounter, there was another tugging at my heart strings. I needed to recharge and refresh my energy. I walk to think about my book, to argue ideas, and to spy on my neighbors Halloween decorations.
Today was a slow, drawn out walk where I saw trees turning and flowers blooming. This is rare in Alaska- it was brilliant, it was beautiful, it was like the world was welcoming death.
I say all this to say, I was asked why I don’t write in a journal everyday. I thought I don’t have anything to say- but after reading another readers 1000 day challenge, I have decided I am going to tell you readers what winter is really like here in Alaska- day by day until 1 March- when the world wakes up for us. Ready for the challenge? I am!
