My Fear

DSCN2085

Fear is a large blanket, covered in many different scenarios.  Fear means many things to many people.  For me fear is the movement of six little legs, moving my way.  Fear is standing on the peak of my favourite mountain, looking down, and trying not to let the edge pull me off.  It is the affection of a lover from whom I have yet  to gain trust.  Fear comes to me in the form of a compliment I do not believe.  Fear is not knowing what is lurking in the shadows when I am alone in the eve’.  Fear is opening up my doors and dropping all of my walls with a very great chance of being burned.  I am afraid of moments like this, writing a post, where I fear I am unable to outdo my last one. Fear is that moment when my heart nearly stops in my chest and I don’t know what to do next to change the path of the situation.  Fear is the bane of my existence.  The thing that holds me back from all of the wild adventure in the unknown.  Fear for me is the word “no” when “yes” should be the only answer.

 

What is fear for you?

February at Last!!!

I am so happy that it is finally February!  We have finally made it over the hump and are on our way into Spring (some of us later rather than sooner, but hey, it’s still on it’s way).  The northern winters can be a bit long… or should I say very long? Either way, this winter was one of the best ones in a long time and I am very thankful… especially since hiking season is on it’s way!

I am starting to itch with anticipation because there are only so many snow pictures you can take and most of the inspiration for writing is a little dark with the lack of sun.  However, I am quite happy with the pictures I did take this winter (some of which I have already shared with you in previous posts).  My boyfriend had purchased me a Nikon for our two-year anniversary in December and after seeing how amazing the winter pictures are, I am insanely excited to see what it can do with the beautiful colours of summer.

I know that I have not been writing as much lately but I am dying to get back on it.  Especially now that months with holidays are here!! So expect some talk of food and some other new categories for this blog.  I think it’s good to shake things up a bit and keep it new.  What do you think?

I would also like to find out if you guys would like some more Yukon posts.  I know in other parts of the world where I live is considered rather interesting and so if you have something you would like to see or hear about let me know and I will do my best to make it happen 🙂

Anyways happy February!! I am definitely excited for this year and what it holds.
