I felt the wind through my hair

12 Mar

Yesterday I was walking my dog Molly and for the very first time since all of this began, I felt the wind blowing through my hair – as in, I have enough hair for the wind to move. It was absolutely wonderful, such a feeling. I can’t explain it – except that it was delicious. I guess, with this cooler weather (cool for here, anyway), I have been wearing hats when I take my puppy out for a walk. But, yesterday I skipped the hat and felt for the first time in a long time – the wind blowing my hair in one direction and then the next. It felt so good.

Here is a picture I took on my way home from a day of medical garbage. I took PCH back home, instead of the freeway, so that I could walk and see birds. I found a beautiful egret.

Egret, Bolsa Chica Reserve

    Hi, Lisa,
    I marvel at your courage and smarts–you just know how important it is to get a good dose of nature like the egret and other birds, the ocean beside the PCH. You also know your need of venting your pain and sometimes discouragement somewhere. How better than by writing?
    I’m making copies of some family history to send that may help a little with family medical history. How I wish I could help more!
    Sending prayers and lotsa love.

    Dear Aunt Sally,

    Thank you for your message. It was really great to go there and be outdoors and close to nature. We were there together when you came out to visit. We went to the Bolsa Chica Reserve – where I took this picture last week. I have a picture of me, you and my Mom from that day. You look great in the photo. But, Mom and I both agree that we did not look so great 🙂

    Thank you for sending copies of some family history. I really appreciate it. And most of all, i appreciate you. Thank you so much for your prayers and love.

    Much love always,
