Wanderlust

The French word for wanderlust or wandering is ‘errance.’ The etymology is the same as ‘error.’ So to wander is to make mistakes. In other words, to make mistakes, to make errors is sort of the idea of learning through trial and error, allowing the mistakes to be part of the process. Robyn Davidson

i don’t think

perfection

in itself should ever be a goal

instead

allowing one’s self the

freedom

for trial and error

the freedom

to explore and to forge new paths,

even, perhaps,

begin new relationships

without “happily ever after”

as the goal

allows one to truly live

in the moment

and can free you from all sorts of

anxiety and stress.

meditation

can offer that same daily practice of

mindfulness

and can help “reset” your mind’s focus

Jenny Blake’s podcast describes how this has changed her life-

i invite you to listen to it

wanderlust

has always been a part of my creative journey-

even with only a

‘squeeze’

of time available,

i love to wander in search of the

every day

exquisite

equally content

to wander

solo

 or with friends

i find these sorts of wanderings

quite meditative, restorative

and

lovely for shifting from restlessness

to

gratitude-

becoming more cognizant of really living in the

moment

and

the simple act of love

for where you are

what is around you and

who you are with..

whether you’re in the mountains or

feeling moved when your blues guitarist

sings

Wild Horses

to you

today’s

loveliness was only a short drive west

to a friend’s acreage

a few of these will

be enlarged for

my new

home

reminders

of

moments such as

these

can’t help but

sweeten

your day

IMG_7973somehow i don’t think i’m

making any

“mistakes”

with my wandering

ways

but definitely there is always a lot of

trial and error

to be found in my photography-

so many of these shots turned out blurry, i forgot to use a faster shutter speed

nevertheless..

in my wandering mind

one thought always leads to another

and i think i’ll be booking

a weekend of horseback riding soon

or a trip down

east

better still

a photography tour with

wild horses
