423. Clearing 

About how I feel in nature..  Out in the clearing, I suddenly hear it, I let go of steering, My suffering clearing.  (Photo – Eli Woodbine, Canada, 2017) 

419. Solitude 

About my need for solitude, and the walk I took yesterday…  Sometimes I just need to be, Without anyone but me, Trekking onward to my goal,  Silent, listening to my soul. (Photo – Eli Woodbine, Canada, 2017) 

387. Drift 

About a 7 hour walk I took in the snow last weekend…  Drifted, like a twinkling flake, Across many miles, Leaving,  Crunched snow in my wake. (Photo – Eli Woodbine, Canada, 2016)

Aside from the fact that it was there that I hatched one of my rare Poke-eggs on Pokemon Go, I also enjoyed some beautiful landscape and even experienced an impromptu gig courtesy of…

247. Adventures 

Weekend adventures are always an unmitigated joy, often regressed back to normality by the moodiest of Monday blues. My latest adventure kicked off with my friends and I taking a Tiki Water Taxi to the island, off the coast of Toronto. We walked along its breadth and at one particularly pertinent point stripped down to…

I treated my partner to a powerboat picnic the other evening after work. The prior few weeks had been filled with radiant sun, beautiful evening sunsets and weather so sublime that I had not questioned that anything but sun would glow as we dashed across the lakes surface. Our soirée was quite removed from this….
