Back in the Game

[This is part of  the ongoing accounting of my weekly-ish searches for fun, thanks to the recommendations of Julia Cameron in The Artist's Way.  For all of my weekly excursion posts,  click here.]

As mentioned a few days ago, it was time for me to head back out for a wander.  Not for any particular purpose - just to see what happened.  So, as is my first inclination, I headed up to the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It stays closed a fair bit in the winter because of road conditions, so I hadn't seen it in a while.  It was, as usual, perfect.  Not as green as spring, not as flashy as fall, but right there in all its majesty.  I think what I like best is the feeling that you're on top of the world, with all of the possibility and lightness that implies.  As I once explained to my husband when we were house hunting (and I kept insisting on a house with a lot sun) - I am a creature of the light.  And there is nowhere you will find more of it than on top of these mountains.
