I've been trekking miles through the open snow. The effort makes for immediacy and focus. The field snow is ice crusted and deep. My 30" snow shoes do well in keeping me on top of the snow, still they tend to get stuck in the pull through the ice. As I'm trekking, I'm already thinking of how I will need another expedition type of snowshoe for this kind of adventure. Nonetheless, I am grateful and exhilarated by how well I am making my way across the open field.
In nature, I am rejuvenated and hopeful. This exercise feeds my work.
