A New Day

I do have a long piece about something new I am doing, but I still have to fix it up a little before I post it. Today I was inspired by Clare over at 3 Beautiful Things (3BT) who has a new blog called Once Around the Park. Each day she chronicles her walk with thirty words. People all over the world have been inspired by Clare and she has a long list of 3BT blogs by those people. Check them out.

Well, I love reading her little poems of life and gratitude, and I obviously am not going to be able to have a long post here once a week. (To wit: last post was Nov 17.) I sit in front of a computer all day at work, so it is not something I like to spend a lot of time on at home. So, I decided today that whenever I take a walk, I would sit down and capture it in thirty words and post it here. I am hoping it will inspire me (and reward me) to get outside every day for at least ten of fifteen minutes. Or, I might just give you 3 beautiful things once in a while. Still, I will be posting about our adoption process and other things, whenever something presents itself.

Today, my walk was from my office to the credit union and back.

The sky is blue out the window. Boots, hat, scarf, coat, gloves. Sixteen degrees and snow blower noise. Deposit check. Hurry back to boring, warm cubicle. Forget to notice beauty.

Have a wonderful new day, every day.
