A Reflective Easter Morning Walk At Community Park
Easter was not joyous for me and my family this year. I awoke Easter morning and reflected on the events of the last six months and how they forever changed my life and the life of my family. The weather out side seemed to match my mood. It was cloudy , cold and raw.
I have many wonderful memories out here. My dad would always bring us here in the Spring. I was hoping to see some water birds on the lake, or maybe even a bald eagle or an osprey. No such luck. Just a couple of fisherman and a only a few birds including this sparrow,
and a few robins. Sorry for the poor quality of the photographs but it was the best i could do with the overcast skies. None of the usual geese, ducks, loons and cormorants I usually find on Lake Irena were on the waters of the lake.
It was cold and dreary at the park but I still found comfort in the beauty of nature even on such a gloomy day. The frailty and shortness of life are always on my mind now. I always enjoyed my walks in the woods of Northeastern Pennsylvania and find even more comfort there these difficult days.
After my hike I returned home and spent time with family on Easter afternoon. Family provides even more comfort these days. Here is a link to some more photographs from my Easter morning hike. Community Park hike April 1 2018.
