Souls of the Heartland
Male Red-winged Blackbird
Great Blue Heron
0730-1130 hrs./39-50 degrees F/35 degree wind chill at start/partly cloudy/0-15 mph wind gusts
El Nino has made things a little cool around here first thing in the morning, but as the wind whips off the Rockies, I trek my way forward. As the warm breath blows into my gloved clenched fists, I fight
to go on, even though my hands are numb. My face also feels the chilled air, but there are high hopes in my heart. If this is what explorers feel like, I have passed the test, and the forward momentum shows that there are many things yet to discover.
See the world through my eyes, and the intensity in my heart. I have only just begun.
