River walk

Found a river walk half a mile from the house. I realised my hands and shoulders were all tensed up.

Was a way along the river before a wee birdy reminded me that I was caught up in my thoughts rather than settling into the walk. I tried to settle myself and just listen. That made all the difference. Fish-plopping, bird-flitting, and river-splishing. Had to keep reminding myself to recalibrate the whole way. Twas a helpful visit. Hoping to do this walk in the early mornings (if dry), and maybe find a few more around the place.

Zen-walked into a clearing where there was a house that is likely to become very important to me in the future. I'll let you know when it does.
