 I am officially the first person to walk across Mirror Lake this year.  I made snow angels and walked all over.  I was out there for nearly half an hour in the beautifully falling snow with the cold stinging my cheeks.  It was wonderous.  It was probably reckless and dangerous, but I figure there are also much worse things I could have chosen to do in my disregard for my personal safety.  I was careful, I know how to handle ice.  I listened for cracks and creaks and found none.  Communing with Nature is always able to turn my day around, or my week around, or whatever.  I feel so much better after that half-hour on the ice.  I realized that I used the participation and one-mindfulness skill without even trying.  With Nature it is almost never a problem to fully experience Her, to lose myself in Her.  When people saw me out on the ice they had varying reactions.  A few smiled and shook their heads; clearly I am crazy.  A few made snide remarks; they want me to fall in.  A few were awed at my bravery; oh how foolish I must be.  But a few, a slim few, followed me out onto the ice.  They saw my footprints; they could see where it was safe to walk.
