Blissfully Adrift...

Wow! What a winter it has been in northwest Ohio!  This past week, sub-zero temps--coupled with extremely high winds and scads of snow--have kept me from photographing much outdoors (These pics were taken on a particularly "good" day last week.  I think it may have been six degrees outdoors at the time!).

Straying from my routines gives me a sense of being adrift.  Interestingly enough, I somewhat like it...

Sure, I've got a few dreams I (someday) aspire to achieve.  Nevertheless, as I've moved away from this whole "five-year plan" stuff, I find I'm going it day-by-day (moment-by-moment, actually).  I'm letting my wise inner knowledge lead me as it deems fit.

Yes, it feels a bit foreign to someone who has always adhered to strict action plans to get her where she wants to go.  Adrift, however, carries with it a feeling of freedom, though.  Plus, there's the knowledge that my inner wisdom isn't going to cast me astray--which is remarkably reassuring...

Ever feel somewhat adrift?  How's that working for you? Would relish hearing about it!

Joy and peace, T.
