The cold air feels cleansing, as I breathe in deeply and pull my scarf tighter. My sweet lab, Baker, runs ahead, returns to check on me, and then chases another scent into the brush. My boots in the mud and crackling frost sound louder against the silent morning.
“Come on Baker! Come back, boy!” He has rolled in something foul and I watch as he finally abandons his prize and ambles over, tail wagging guiltily.
The fog, still water, and muted sun trying to break through the gloom– reflect my own inner turmoil, as I search for clarity.
