I just got back from a long walk along the lake shore. Can I first mention that I've lived in an area backing the waterfront for over 6 years and I have never gone? How is that possible? It was amazing! I don't know what made me go today, but I am going every week from now on.
It was so calming and peaceful. I think everyone needs to take the time to do something like that - something that truly makes you feel at ease and in sync with the universe.
Although I was just a few short steps from "civilization" and reality as it is, I felt as though I was millions of miles away without a care in the world. Apparently lots of people have already discovered this - I'm late in the game, as usual.
Apart from some crazy killer dragon flies, it was perfect!
For the first time in a long time, I was able to just clear my mind, and it felt really good. I came home all excited and brimming with ideas for the novel. I'm going to go write them down before I lose them. I don't know how long this sense of euphoria will last, but I'm hoping for a while.
Bye for now!
