A Slice of Life Post: Walking in Nature



Hello everyone. I hope all is well with you. I’m back today with another Slice of Life Post. I had an awesome weekend and I’m in a very positive frame of mind. I thought of something to make my last WIP stronger and I also worked out a plot issue with my current WIP. That’s always a good feeling, isn’t it?

The weather was fantastic this weekend and hubby is working hard on our basement. It’s shaping up very nicely and we’re getting excited about the prospect of having a place to go during the hot weather. There’s definitely a temperature change when we go downstairs!

I went for a walk on Saturday and Sunday. Nothing clears the mind like walking in nature. I solve plot issues that way and release tension. In fact, studies show walking in nature is a great way to deal with depression

As I strolled down the road, enjoying the sun on my back a fawn stood to the side watching me. He must’ve seen me before I spotted him. He was calm as I approached, he wasn’t scared at all. In fact, he didn’t bound away until I was about five feet away. I reached out my hand to see if he’d come closer, but he didn’t. That’s the closest I’ve been to a fawn out in the wild.

 I’ve heard this is a sign from a loved one that has passed. Whenever something like this happens, I want to believe it’s a message from my dad. I miss him a great deal, and it gives me comfort when I have a moment like this.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if it were true? I love the idea that there are relatives on the other side, watching out for me.

How about you? Do you have any moments you’d like to share? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
