Today was a restful day, though I was disappointed to have to take a day off from school due to illness. The word boring comes to mind whenever I picture a day not working with kids. However, I did manage to escape my germ ridden home for a different type of healing solitude. I decided to get out of the house for a little while as I have been bed ridden for far too long in my opinion.
I grabbed the camera and the warmest clothes I could find and headed for an old state forest I used to ride my bike to as a child. It's a little known spot and was perfect for just sitting by the water and breathing in the fresh air. Here are some photos of my restful spot in the woods. The second one is altered slightly to take on a oil painting appearance.
