I have to confess that even though I love what I do it has sometimes gotten in the way of doing what I love on my own. As a youngster I was a passionate duck hunter. Over time I guided many a duck hunting trip, I don’t guide that any longer. But lately I had been thinking about doing some on my own, not to guide but rather as an actual hobby.
Early winter mornings are the best. Especially this winter with clear mornings that are not too cold. When I get up at 4:45 the stars fill the sky or the moonlight is bright on the snow cover. As I go through the standard routine getting the stoves going and the coffee made it is still dark making the fire in the living room stove a source of light and heat.
I’ve been writing on this blog since the spring of 2005 and had one on another platform before that for a year or two. It is hard to imagine that the years have gone by so quickly! I spent a little time over recent days revisiting old posts and literally strolling down memory lane. What a great way to see how things have changed over that short period of time. Way back when I tried to write a post almost every day that soon became a chore and I dropped to a couple of times a week and now once a week (mostly).
