Afternoon Walk

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

I live in a canyon made up of winding one lane streets, and my house sits literally on a one-lane ring road around a park. So, it begs the question, why do I have such a hard time, putting on my walking shoes, opening the door and going for a walk? I will find any excuse to put it off.

Tonight I didn't put it off, I stopped work about 4:30 and took off walking, just like that, and by the time I reached the far side of the park, I was ready to tackle the drop across the street, and hill on the other side.

People were just arriving home from work, dogs barked at me a stranger on their street, a donkey came over to check me out. Goats peered out of their shed at me to see if I had food. People waved, I waved back. I felt lighter as I moved through the streets. It was a good walk, a good workout for the body, and the soul
