We have great camaraderie. We laugh, we tease, we tell off-colour jokes, we support and encourage each other, and we even have prayer circles occasionally when someone needs an extra boost, and all the while we are getting fitter and stronger.
Occasionally I'm especially lucky: I get to go home, grab breakfast, then load up my camera and come back to the same park. This time I am alone and can tune in to the beauty around me and here the whisperings of the trees and flowers. I can get down on my belly and really visit with the tiny but beautiful little flowers that line the trail.
I am so fortunate to have the balance to the vibrant energy of my hiking girls and the introspective energy of my camera, myself and nature.

Today my message from the World, through my lens, to me was all about balance. The Yin and the Yang. I also got to appreciate once again just how fortunate I am.
