escape with me

I have a treat for you today. Come and join me on my morning walk yesterday and escape for a few minutes from the hate, the anger, the despair, and the noise that we are all being pummelled with each and every day. I don’t know about you but my troubled soul needed a little healing and when the sun rose yesterday on freshly fallen snow with the mountains stark against the bluest of skies, I knew all I had to do was dress warmly, put on my boots and venture out into the crisp air and morning sunshine.  I’m happy to say it worked.


It didn’t take long to enjoy every magical moment with everyone else who was out and about.


This gallery, which I have also made into a slide show, I hope will help sooth your soul too.

As I came closer to the trees  in Vanier Park I was greeted by a symphony of sound that made me stop in my tracks and listen for several minutes, joined by others who were equally as enthralled.  Here is a short excerpt from my post entitled Birdsong for today’s Daily Prompt: Heard.  If you feel like pausing for a minute or two and hearing more visit the post and listen to it all.

I hope this has made your day as much as it did mine.


  1. May I recommend Thoreau’s essay “Walking”? A very thoughtful examination of the power of going for a walk. Thank you for posting. The birds were beautiful to listen to.

  2. Winter Beauty! There is nothing like the song of a bird to restore and refresh the weary. These are beautiful, heartwarming images Andrew. I loved the ones too, with the people and their dog. Thanks. These were a lovely view on your corner of the world.

  3. You are so right – we do need a tonic for the incessant bitter noise that is assaulting the senses like a grater to the heart. Your makes of this greedily beautiful place have certainly worked some magic for me. I am calmed. And I thank you.
