A Visit to White River County Park - January 2022
The largest park in Walworth County that runs a few hundred acres and gives visitors the ability to get down close to the White River during all seasons. On this recent Winter visit, the River was a mix of frozen and moving. I visited (and posted) about this very park last year in mid-January.
If you get off the main trail a bit, you can get down to enjoy the sights and sounds. This visit was a reminder about being 'present'. Spend a few minutes listening to the running river and you can forget about whatever is on your mind - both past and future. And just be present.
Jimmy V's famous speech talked about doing three things everyday: "Number one is laugh. Number two is think -- spend some time time in thought. Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears."
This sure feels like a spot to do #2: spend some time in thought. Our visit to Walworth County feels like a good reminder to do all three everyday. Or try to. Then, you'll have 'a full day'. What a guy. What a speech.
