One of my favorite places to walk. I’ve been here dozens of times but it’s during this time of year you get a different perspective.
It’s almost the end of October and still we are getting decent days with sunshine. Yesterday I went to the park with a friend and relaxed for a few hours by the water. This was a great way to end my weekend. The only thing I guess I would complain about were the black fly. If you look to the left of the sun you can see a black dot, that’s a fly. I wonder how many more days like this we will get this year before the real cold comes?
I’ve spent time on that bench over the years. I’m kind of anxious so being still for a long period of time, unless I’m sleeping, isn’t easy. When I’m here it’s no different but I try to relax. Usually my eyes are jetting around trying to take it all in looking for something to photograph. This day was no different but I did manage to sit there for five minutes.
You wake up each day feeling less sad. You think about your divorce less and you miss your ex less. The sadness starts to turn to indifference then it’s just a memory. That was a time in my life that has passed and nothing more. I no longer wish things were different or that I could somehow go back. Now I see it as a gift and opportunity to experience things I missed for so long.
