As I sit here with my laptop on my lap after 16 hours of work and writing, writing and work, I realize that I need an outdoor break. The weather is going to be warm, too warm for me, but this time of year, early morning trips are the best — birds everywhere, and the scent of new green and flowers is so heavy, you feel as if you’ve walked through a cosmetic section of a department store.

I think no matter where I go, and I have no idea where yet, I will leave the camera behind. Lately, my photography just hasn’t been bringing me the joy it once did, so maybe I need a break from it as much as my computer. Or, being the wise old and weak woman that I am, I’ll take it and leave it in the car–just in case.

Regardless, I need to find a place where I can spend the day and come home content. While I’m at it, I might as well get out of the house, too.
