My wife and I are off for a few days at a spa tomorrow so Lady goes to my wife's parents for a few days. She'll be well looked after, too well looked after, but she won't have a walk so we headed off this morning for an extra long ramble through the forest. Now colder with snow falling gently, the forest was so quiet when I stopped to listen. In this silence you can hear your soul...
I haven't had much to say for a while. I could offer excuses but nothing that would hold up in a court of law. I don't like to spend too much time at a screen but I do read and enjoy some of the blogs out there. Finally I feel guilty enough to put finger tip to keyboard to belt out a post. Most of the blogs I read are from the northern hemisphere where we are all looking for signs of the arrival of spring, at least that is the theme on the minds of the type of blog I get attracted to. I am an avid follower of Griz and his Riverdaze blog where I meet many of you and we are educated, informed and entertained by his powers of observation. He mentioned in his latest post how he "feels" as much as "sees" a sunrise or sunset. Let me just say that here Lady and I can feel rather than see signs of spring at the moment, but we keep looking.
Lady is the dog, a 2002 vintage English Cocker Spaniel. I am Tramp, a simple person of somewhat earlier vintage with simple thoughts.
After a few months of following blogs I occasionally record what I feel on my jaunts into the outdoors but I am more of a listener than a talker.
