Thinking of Necessities

A Time too Think

A Walk To the Pond 


“You can be a big fish in a small pond, but you're only going to be competing against people at that level.”   

-Finn Balor 

    As I walked down the street to the pond my mind began to drift thinking why would fitz send us into nature. Maybe to think more like Thoreau, or to just relax and focus on nature to calm down. The temperature Is beginning to change from the cold winter to the warm weather of spring. With this change the birds seem to instantly settle back into the north rebuilding nests and starting new lives. At our school next year we will be doing these same as these birds. Find their home, friends, and way to live their lives. The smell of the water with the splashed on the shore of the water sending a cooler breeze into the air. My feet resting on the ground with the unbalance of the dirt being shifted whenever someone walks upon the ground. When I arrive back at my house I realize how more relaxed and centered I am, making the walk very well worth it.
