Saturday:) Sights and Sounds and a Sunset

21 Jun

“A day spent without the sight or sound of beauty, the contemplation of mystery, or the search of truth or perfection is a poverty-stricken day; and a succession of such days is fatal to human life.”

Lewis Mumford

Last night, when I went for my late evening walk, the looming dark clouds were rolling in. It stormed during the night and through the early morning hours. The wind rattled the windows and thunder lit up the sky. Cool!

This morning, the sun was out, and the cooler temps busted out into the mid 90’s later. So, I took several shorter walks, and I’ll probably get out one more time before dark. Love my sunsets.

I stopped past Miss Bernadine’s house, and I gave St. Francis his mandatory pat on the head. Got to!

A couple of little butterflies fluttered around me on my evening walk. And, since I’ve been challenging myself lately, I tried

another challenge today. I finished a 5 Day Meditation/Writing Challenge. Then, I signed up for a Coursera on-line course offered by Yale called, The Science of Well-Being. It’s long and involved, but I’m up for the challenge, and part of the homework is challenging yourself.

Today, instead of my usual 2 or 3 mile walks, I decided to shoot for at least 10,000 steps. When I reached that goal, I walked a little more. Amazing! (Yes, I am,)

Then, a beautiful sunset to end my day.

Happy Saturday, my friends.
