#24 of 31 Slice of Life Slowing Down the Busyness
Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers for hosting the Slice of Life Challenge. Visit their site to read more slices.
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.
