Making Choices

Sophia Said, go out to play. Follow your imagination and the day was filled with expectation

A Chosen Path

I walk / jog along soaked and muddied paths in Johnstown Castle Gardens. Moorhens dive and disappear in the lake, re-appearing further along as if by magic. It’s raining hard and even though my trainers are not waterproof, I walk right through the middle of flooded paths, like a child out to play. It’s only water after all. I can get dry later, so will my jeans, trainers, jacket. hat and gloves, all soaked, but I am alive, exhilarated and fully intent on making the best of what God has in store for me. Perhaps I will invest in a new pair of walking shoes / boots and waterproof coat, when to wear them would still be my choice to make.

After waling around two of the three lakes, I need coffee. The cafeteria is bright and warm, people sit at tables drinking and eating while I, bedraggled and gloriously wet, think of pushing boundaries of comfort zones. Happy new Year to you all.

  1. Happy New Year, Teri.

    Yes! Walk through puddles. They are here now, and so are we. Who knows what will be next. This moment is really all we have. Shoes will dry out, but the memory will last a lifetime.

  2. Thanks for reading Steven and glad you received a word that took your interest. I have a lot of catching up to do on your posts, just read your recent one, Triskelion today. It asks me to read it again and let the profoundness of it sink in. Back to you soon with thoughts.

  3. I loved the descriptions of you being out there in the wild wet world and then finding coffee at the cafeteria. Thanks for checking out the Triskelion posting. A bit much for length though. Happy New Year!
