Autumn in the North Woods is BEAUTIFUL!
Commonly known as Devils Tower, it is historically known as Bear Lodge by local tribes.
The trees started changing in late August, and now in October they are shades of yellow, orange, red, and green.
Winter is here in the North Woods
After an adventure to the Badlands and the Black Hills, I returned home to find Winter came early. A blanket of snow covers my woods, and the temperature stays well below freezing. I do love this time of year.
Deer, squirrels, and birds enjoy the treats that seem to "magically" show up in the yard.
There is something magical about experiencing an adventure in nature and on the road. The feel of the RV while driving where my path lead me brought excitement and a thrill of adventure. Time away from the busy, technology filled life allows a person to think clearly.
I knew that I needed to take the time while I could. I did not know the COVID would strike. I got home before the lock downs, and self quarantined to be sure I was OK.
In these COVID-19 pandemic times, we need to stay home. It is a time to reflect, study, create, and do things you wanted to do but were too busy to do.
To those of you who are afraid to spend time alone with yourself, this is the time to do that. There is nothing to fear. It is a clue that you are not facing yourself, if you cannot be alone. We have heard the saying, "embrace your fears." This is a time when you can embrace your fear of being alone and learn from it. Be honest with yourself. Avoid "fooling" yourself. Do you need to forgive yourself? Forgive others? It may not be easy, but you can do this.
