Yet another sunny day here in Alberta with a chilly wind that is blowing in fro the Northwest and judging by the headache I would almost guarantee rain or possibly flurries coming in.
Atmospheric pressure effects many of us, some with aches and pains others with headaches. I have been lucky enough to have them both. Such is life I guess. I have come to learn to live with them. Maybe I should have a job as a weatherman cause there are these days I feel like a human barometer.
Welcome as always and may you find some rest here at the Fireside... stay as long as you like. This will be one of those short hubs just as a catch up on what is happening. May this find you well and getting into the swing of summer.
Taking a Break
I missed a day checking my Facebook account and found 84 emails in my account and started to look at where I spend so much time. with the pending summer months and the call to spend time outdoors after being inside all winter I decided to deactivate my account on facebook and focus on writing, gardening, Fly Fishing, Photography and maybe some travelling this year.
Mainly spending time on some serious writing as I have a few projects on the go and they have been falling behind. Social Media is a great place to promote your work and stay connected but it can also become overwhelming. I love people and learning all about where they are from, hobbies, and ambitions in life. Time to just step back and change directions a little.
This region in Canada where I live has many such places like the one in this picture to stop and allow the heart, soul and spirit to just sit and get recharged and summer months are set aside to spend a little time doing so.
I spend a great deal of time fishing in the summer months. Floating the many rivers and spending time in small lakes that have trout and this picture is of the mood of transportation. It is all self contained with many compartments and a rear deck that hold all I need for a day trip or a few days out on the water in some remote locations. The paddles allow me control in faster water. I wear a set of chest waders and flippers and with my legs dangling in the water I can fly fish and manoeuvre into better locations.
The winter months find it suspended in my garage just hanging and waiting. It is this time of year it calls and the call has been getting louder.
No matter where we go there is yet another road to follow. Sometimes we are sure of where it ends. Other times we are not. There are times when we reach an intersection and we are given three new directions to choose from. No matter the direction there is a new adventure to be found.
It may be a new hub, a new novel, another picture or maybe that fish you have always wanted to catch. What ever the call I think it important to listen and follow. You never know where it may lead. Listen close and follow as it may be where you have been called.
I will continue to write here on Hub Pages, a great and wonderful place to share ideas and adventures. For those who have followed me you are awesome and know that you are loved dearly. The series "Wild Freedom" I have started has begun to shape into a new book and I thank you for your support. I will continue to share as we go along.
