I’m the kid who has this habit of dreaming
Sometimes gets me in trouble too
But the truth is I could no more stop dreaming
Than I could make them all come true
~ “The Kid,” lyrics by David Wilcox
Every Saturday, it is my habit to go on a solitary photo hike. This weekly outing is my chance to focus on my photography hobby, to appreciate the beauty of nature, and find a quiet place to relax.
I also take it as a chance to daydream. I talk to myself, sing terribly off-key to favorite songs, dance a little dance, and sometime just sit in the sun, soaking in the light and warmth.
These forays into the woods, or along the ocean shore, are more than a habit. They are my way of finding myself while trying to not get lost.
