Even though it’s only a mile, my running path is different and I am seeing different sights, new houses, new building, new flowers, and it’s been great.
There is a bridge
That overlooks the bay, which is about a mile off in the distance.
The views are just stunning from this bridge and I don’t realize when I’m running how high I am compared to sea level. That is until I run up a couple doosie hills.
Or until I look down from the bridge and realize there is a man and a dog (center of the frame) wayyyyy down there.
I am not exactly sure how high this is but it’s really high.
And the railing over the side of the bridge is not very high.
However, all that height is liberating, freeing, and somehow I feel even more connected to nature being high up. <—That sounds cheesy. But it’s true.
Speaking of cheesy, I haven’t had Raw Vegan Cheezy Kale Chips in awhile.
I need to make kale chips again. And I’ll probably use my oven at about 300F for 45 minutes give or take, rather than bothering with my dehydrator which would be an 8 to 10 hour ordeal. No thanks.
And who cares if they’re baked and not “raw”. I don’t! All I care about is the finished product’s taste: crispy, cheezy goodness.
Thanks for the kind words and comments on my last post, Bonding Time. Yes, Skylar and I had an especially special afternoon and I frequently remind myself, what am I doing all of this for, what am I working hard for, what am I trying to accomplish, what am I building, doing, creating if I am not successful at making sure my daughter knows how loved she is and how special she is and that she’s the center of it all.
It was lovely reading over the special bonding moments you had with your moms growing up.
1. Are you scared of heights?
No, I’m not, in general.
I have lived on the 32nd floor of a building before, I love going to the 95th floor of the John Hancock Building Signature Room in Chicago for cocktails, I don’t mind airplanes or flying, nor do I mind tall escalators that overlook shopping areas.
But I will say being out in the open air and being that high up does make me take a quick step back from being close too close to the bridge railing! I’m sure as I continue to run over the bridge, I won’t even “notice” it or think about it as time passes. But for now it’s not a fear so much as it’s an awe of the beauty surrounding me.
2. Do you have any phobias or fears?
I mentioned mine here.
And why. It has to do with things experiences (<—shudder) as a child.
Right now I am out with a friend and this post is auto-publishing.
Hint about what I’m doing is here
Be back with a recap later. Or find me on Instagram. I’m sure I have pictures up!
