A few weeks ago on a wintry, rainy day I went for a walk and simply took photos. It was a nice meditation for me as the year first got underway. Getting out and enjoying my surroundings and playing with my camera’s settings was a nice change from sitting behind my laptop and typing away.
The weather has been nice here lately even though it was supposed to snow yesterday. The weather is quite blustery, but very sunny with blue skies. I do, however, love a cold, rainy day especially when it’s dark and cloudy. I think in the winter those are my favorite days because they are so rare in North Carolina.
In the next few months I will be traveling quite a lot so I am preparing mentally for that. I traveled frequently last year and it did take some time for me to recover – longer than usual. I’m excited, though, about traveling internationally again. I’m ready to dust off the passport.
