Is The Outdoors, Calling You Out?
It's that time of the year, when everything starts coming to life. Trees are budding, grass and such are starting to green up a little, You know what I mean. The last few days have been warm and the tree frogs are singing, and song birds and other birds of spring, start to show up, and somewhere, deep down inside, a little voice yells " let me out of here!" Yes, that part of you that enjoys getting out in the good ole outdoors, whether its camping, or fishing or hunting, or maybe even a good hike in to the deep woods or something!
It's just that time of year where a lot of outdoor people get out and enjoy their days off, not confined to a dirty old , stale aired, office somewhere! Like they say," a bad day fishing, is better than a good day at work! " I don't remember a bad day a fishing, let alone a good day at work. I just never understood that comment!
A beautiful sunrise on the lake, or a excellent sunset at dark, or a good old campfire outside, these are things that are in us and for whatever reason, draws us to the outdoors, to enjoy all we can!
I just love the smell of a campfire in the outdoors! What is there about a fire? Everyone I ever saw, or spent some time in the outdoors, just loves to build a fire and watch it burn, and it smells so good. You know, where you build a fire, and it gets dark, and the TALL hunting and fishing tales start to flow? I know that never happens at YOUR campfires! Right? That's what I thought!
Just something about being out in the outdoors, kind of , like makes a connection! It just seems natural and you start seeing and enjoying the outdoors for what I believe, was created for all of us, and with each and every one of us , in its own way. Every one seems to see the outdoors, in a different light or something , and when we share the experiences, it just enriches each and every moment with satisfying inner peace.
Sometimes I like a one on one experience , in the outdoors! Just me, the outdoors, and my passion for it , keeps me hungry for the experience when ever I get the opportunity! Sometimes when I am fishing , I lose all of the stress, and just become tranquil , and quiet , just taking in all of the noises and pictures , going on around me.
So enjoy the "Great Outdoors!" I hope to see ya out there soon! Catch a big bunch of fish! Boat safely!
