Today has been so beautiful. The outdoors screams for you to come out. The fresh air beckons you to breath it in, while the sun reaches to warm your face. For the first time in MONTHS, being outside has been utterly enjoyable.
I decided to answer the call from nature. Shea and I took the dogs hiking through the woods back a mile or so to an open pond. We sat and watched the dogs play chase in the water, running through the woods, and playing keep away with sticks. They were off-road dogs today, no leashes, no rules, just pure fun, not a care in the world. In that same sense, I felt as they did. My mind was cleared of school work, mid-terms, cleaning the house, moving, being able to just ignore the eveyday responsibilties of life for just a moment.
What a gloriously, wonderful day.
