Not much adventure here in Brimfield...I spent the day doing some reading to get me ready for my writing. I don't want to jump into this work thing too quickly. On top of that, if I got my work done too soon, I'd lose my "Queen of Procrastination" title. I got in a nap and then went out looking for a place to walk.
I started out for the Mogadore Reservior, looking for a link up to the Buckeye Trail. After driving some twisty back roads, and turning around a few times, I came upon a chained up entrance to the park. Darn! Plan A wasn't going to work. On to Plan B.
I headed over to Kent State's stadium to check out the trail there. It winds all the way to campus ~ a nice 1.8 mile walk one way. It didn't exist when I went to school there. And even though it was only 30 degrees outside, the shining sun made it a wonderful walk. Lots of memories came flooding back as I walked the trail. It's hard to believe it was 30 years ago.
The walk was just what I needed to slow my mind down and clear my head. I walked back to the car, promising myself that I'd write for 2 hours tonight.
Guess what? It didn't happen. That's the nice thing about being on Spring Break. I don't have to follow a schedule. I got back to my mom and dad's, ate dinner, put on my pajamas, and snuggled into bed, ready to write my SOL.
I didn't accomplish everything that I wanted to, but that's ok. I've been working on not being so busy. I'm getting better and better at it and I'm discovering lots of beautiful places along the way.
