sitting out

a late night tonight at work and i arrived home well after dark. the evening was starlit and cold, the still, brisk sort of cold that permeates lungs, clears the mind, and eases the soul. so instead of making dinner, instead of checking email and voicemail, instead of starting homework or housework or coursework, i stayed outside. i sat outside, in the night. and for a good long time.

Good for you! I took a walk tonight. I am in the Houston area so it was slightly chilly.

It hasn't BEEN really COLD here this year!

Love the pic - as always....

It is interesting to hear how others recharge their batteries. I need me time every day. Sometimes I start to read and end up staring in space and thinking about things.

It's wonderful just to "be" there, isn't it!

Sounds perfect :) It's always good to unplug and spend some time reconnecting with nature. When I do that I feel more connected to myself. Lovely photo by the way.
