Cartwheels in the Rain

Cartwheels have become something of a habit of mine now. I adore doing them; figuring out more cool ways to do it, and still try to, every time, land on my feet.

But have you done a cartwheel in the last few months?
You should.

It can make you relax, makes you look at things in a different view (seriously, you're upside down!) and just clears your thoughts.

Yesterday morning, I went off on an adventure with my wonderful dog, Reign. (who has the most stunning brown eyes)
We ran through the wet undergrowth and over logs. It was raining beautifully and chilly. But I didn't mind.

Coming to a clearing, I suddenly had the urge to spin a cartwheel. I did. Right into a deep puddle.

Cartwheels are grand, but cartwheels in puddles are simple marvelous! I did it again.

Then I thought, Why just land in one? Why not start and land in a deep, watery puddle?
I did.

I came inside soaked...and I mean really. My light green, long sleeve shirt was dripping, my beanie (or Took as they say in Canada) made a Plop sound as it hit the kitchen counter, and my jeans were making Swishing sounds as I walked.

What a way to start off a morning!

Welcome to the first post of Trail of Thoughts

Welcome, G'day, Howdy, Yo, Hello, Dude, Hi!

As you can see by the title...this is the very first post of my new blog Trail of Thoughts. This blog will be all about writing, art, music, dreams and ideas.

This will not be a post-every-day-blog though, more of a daybook of my artish life (I believe I just made up a word...maybe not).

I started this because Jare was being a Troll for not posting anything and I was tried that people were asking after him and he didn't answer. This is my space (where there happens to be a lot of room...I wonder why?).

Join me if you deem me worthy. =)


The reason I gave ^ is not the real one I started this because, for one I've had this title up my sleeve for a long time-I have really wanted to use it. And I think there should be a place where all of you can see my stuff-but also share your own. Please share, your own ideas are welcomed (and I will not steal them). This blog is under COPYRIGHT as well, please, do not take what is not yours. Thank you
