IMG_1471.JPGYesterday I went for a run. It was a beautiful day and I just had to get outside. As I ran my mind cleared and my soul refreshed. Running does that for me especially in the middle of the day. I still work the day job and often I just need to walk away for an hour or so and it makes all the difference in the world.

Speaking of the world, that’s what struck me yesterday as I was heading back to the office huffing and puffing as I slowly ran up a very large hill. Even as I trot a familiar path  that goes along the Spokane River, I see what I expect to see…most of the time. Yesterday out of the corner of my eye I saw something that made me pause. Was it a man? Was it a monster??  What was I seeing?

I laughed out loud as I turned to see what it was that caught my eye.  It wasn’t a man or a monster or anything remotely dangerous. It was in fact two shrubs and a tree! But look for yourself and see what you think. Is it just nature?  Or is the world giving us a glimpse of something else?

It made me smile and it made the rest of my day. The run always makes me feel good but yesterday seeing the world in a little bit different way made me feel great. May imagination and fantasy fill your soul with wonderful things.
