2 More Days!

School gets out in 2 more days! Today I was supposed to be volunteering at the school for what we used to call Field Day, but is called Celebration of Excellence Day at my sons school. The event was postponed until tomorrow, this being the second postponement... or is it the third. I've lost count now. All I know is I didn't have anything scheduled for today because I volunteered to help out in the last ever Field Day event my son will partake in. What to do, what to do? I have plenty to do, don't we all. But I've been watching presentations on and off for the last 4 days from B&H's Optic Imaging Conference. For those that do not know what B&H is, it's a Super Store in New York City filled to the brim with photo and video equipment - TOYS, that I can't afford to buy! This is the 2nd conference that has been put on in conjunction with Linblad Expeditions and National Geographic. So that being said I got the bug to get out and shoot for me. No, assignments or clients just me in the place I feel the best - the woods... or nature in general. I go longer and longer periods these days without being in the woods for various reasons, mostly being not enough time. Every time I get back there (alone) I always ask myself why it took so long to come back. Even though I am CLEARLY way out of shape, through my huffing and puffing I find I am still invigorated. It's because it's where my spirit feels the best, so yeah, my legs were feeling the burn, but my heart, mind and spirit were rejoicing. I love to hike with people, but it's when I'm alone that I really reconnect with nature, my spirit, something unexplainable. With only two days left before the kids are home 24/7 with me I felt I needed to get out. The weather was supposed to be bad, so I figured cool, I'll work with that. I waited for the rain and waited and I checked the radar every so often only to find this hole over my town with green and yellow all around it, constantly moving and reshaping itself so that it never rained where I was. Seriously when does that ever happen? I wanted rain. I brought my rain jacket, I was all set. Waiting for the first drops to fall and hoping the hail predictions would come for some cool shots. We got nada, nothing, zip. It's ok though. I had a great few hours to myself to revitalize my inner self in preparation for the next couple of months of bickering siblings and nagging commands from myself to do your chores, get off that device and go outside!
