I am loving these foggy day hikes – almost as much as the alpine. There is a magic that occurs when I am walking alone through the forest and the mist is so heavy that the world is transformed into a fairy-tale land.
And so that was lovely. I loved today. And I was okay with the ache in my heart and the moments of melancholy – because this is where I hiked (The Awesome Trail and the Ridge) four years ago when Simon and I were new and we were in love and my life felt blessed.
And it’s still blessed. I have as much or more capacity to love now as I did then.
