Walk One - I heard:
- children laughing and playing (we live close to my son's school)
- demolition - a house being knocked down around the corner
- cows laying and their calves calling - the wind must be travelling from the west for me to be able to hear the closest farms from home...
Walk Two - I saw:
- waves crashing over our town's harbour breakwater, accompanied by the crashing sound several seconds later as I live quite a distance but up the hill from the sea - some spring tides this week!
- an elderly man out walking his dog (as was I) - I hope to be active like him at his age (86). Slowly but surely every day he heads out
- fresh snow on the mountain range I can see from the opposite direction to the sea from my home - it's spring! What's with the cold blast! But set against the backdrop of a glorious blue sky, I do so prefer the look of the mountains with snow instead of drab summer brown
Week 3 - signs of the season
- the crabapple tree set in the footpath across the road has exploded into blossom in the last few days. walking under it today with my son and my dog, the scent of the blossom, the petals gently raining on us...SPRING
- The bright pink chrysanthemum my son found for me on the path - my something pink, and a reminder that my dahlias will need to be sorted soon!
- daffodils flowering brightly at the old cemetary down the road - a reminder that once upon a time those graves were tended, and even though most inhabitants passed 100-150 years ago, some still are - by who?.
So while I'm not doing a programme as such as yet, I am definitely enjoying being more 'present' in the walks I have taken!
