I went to the Field of Serenity the other night for the first time in a while. I haven’t been taking the walks with the dogs because I have been so exhausted from work. Thankfully, Lance has been the champion and made sure that the dogs get at least one walk, usually two, every day.
I’ve really missed going to the Field of Serenity. It really is something the refuels my soul. I have been telling myself the walks would really help improve my whole being, but I guess I have been in a funk and just couldn’t seem to snap out of it. Pouting, I guess, about being so tired and having less time. At any rate, I drove over and met Lance and the dogs at the field, and I am so happy that I did.
The field is in the headed toward fall phase. All of the flowers that were there are now in seed, post-seed, or dying off stage. Not as pretty in some respects as when things are all green and flowering but this also has its own beauty.
It was dusk-ish when we got there and I was armed with my camera, which had a fresh set of batteries in it. The whole trip reminded me of just how much I love going over to the Field of Serenity and taking some pictures. How is that so easy to forget that?
The dogs were happy and excited I was there. Since I haven’t been going for the walks for a while, the dogs all come to me when Lance is getting ready to head out with them. It is almost as if they are asking me if I am going, too, or trying to insist that I do come along. Yes, I have felt guilty about not going. (No picture of Truman because his photo was blurry from him flopping around on his back like he does when he is happy)
I got some really nice shots. The sunset was amazing but, as I have not figured out how to use all of the settings on my camera, I was unable to get the true colors of it. I did get one great photo (great to me at least) of Mt. Rainier in phantom mode, though.
So, does this mean I am going to start taking the walks, again? I want to say yes. I don’t think I’m ready to commit to that, yet, though. I don’t want to say that I am and then not feel up to following through. One thing I will commit to is driving over to the Field of Serenity to meet up with Lance and the dogs so I can join in with the play fun there and utilize my camera the way I love to.
