The Gray Foothills

The distant foothills west of my home are almost completely enveloped in gray clouds as this current low-pressure system works its way through the area. Another low-pressure center will follow on its heels, according to the National Weather Service.

Taking a very short walk this morning, the cold, damp air smelled reminiscent of my Michigan heritage.

It reminds me of standing alone in the wood both as a child and an adult listening to and watching the tall trees sway in unison high above me as though performing a beautiful ballet of nature. I will never escape who I am, nor my northern roots.

It’s been perfect weather for walking, so I’ve been walking my neighborhood instead of driving anywhere. It’s kind of hard to believe that tomorrow’s weather will be one hundred percent different with rain showers and slightly cooler temperatures.
