“If you don’t think every day is a good day, just try missing one.” Cavett Robert
You have to remember that the hard days are what make you stronger. The bad days make you realize what a good day is. If you never had any bad days, you would never have that sense of accomplishment! Aly Raisman
Every day is a good day and today was a particularly great day! When I saw the theme for our photo challenge, I immediately thought about my walks on the Croton Aqueduct and all the beautiful flora and fauna I see along the way. My journey takes me through three villages and, now and again, I stop to look at the store windows and container plants ensconced on a balcony in front of me. It is a relaxing, therapeutic walk and many a creative post has simmered as I strolled through nature and the three little villages on the Hudson. I also decided to explore a wonderful new photo display feature – Mesh – that Automattic has created for us and I hope you will scroll through and look at the pictures I added to the mix.
“Every day is a good day to be alive, whether the sun’s shining or not.” Marty Robbins
On a good day I think I’m handsome, on an average day I’m average. I’m a man’s man so I don’t necessarily know how cute we’re supposed to be. Cee Lo Green
Every time I spend in nature feels like a healing balm slathered all over my body in a Spa. I love the quiet on the trail; the gentle breeze that caresses me as I walk; the occasional exchange with a familiar friendly face; and the ever-changing landscape, as new flowers spring up, and a deer, squirrel, dog, stray cat or even a raccoon stops to stare. It is a journey to the self and a great way to regroup and prepare for the day ahead. The dappled sun shinning through the tree tops always reminds me of the beauty and power of light … and for that, I am grateful for every single good day!
“I believe, I believe every day is a good day when you paint.” Bob Ross
I hope you enjoyed the journey with me. Don’t hesitate to ask questions or add a memory of your walks in nature. By the way, the picture of the deer was taken from my kitchen window. I live in the suburbs, in an area that has protected land for wildlife. Every day I see a deer, wild turkey, birds, squirrels, cats and a host of other small animals passing by my kitchen window. It is this that makes me sad when I see large swats of land cleared of trees, and concrete jungles created in their place. May we always find ways to preserve nature and all that contributes to helping us have Good Days! Have a great weekend!
My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out how others interpreted the theme – Today Was A Good Day – below.
