“Walking is the great adventure, the first meditation, a practice of heartiness and soul primary to humankind. Walking is the exact balance between spirit and humility.” ~ Gary Snyder
With daylight savings time done for the next four months… it won’t stop me from taking my early evening walks…I’ll admit that I enjoy it….even when there is snow and whatnot on the ground…plod on…plod on….
When I venture out for a walk, I sometimes meet some interesting people…from all walks of life. They could be dog walkers…people going or returning from an errand…the homeless… some of them I’ve gotten to know over the past few years…sometimes I’ll give them a dollar or two, as I know how it is toContinue reading “Interesting People”
early morning coffee in hand pounding the pavement saying hi to everyone yet no plan as to where he is going
took a walk in the rain to the neighborhood store bought a some scratch tickets and played a some lottery numbers now wishing myself some luck
cut my evening walk its nasty hot and humid which is not to my liking
went for an earlier walk shortly after nine not much shade damn…I could feel the sun…and it felt like being in a 400 degrees oven so I managed to cut the distance as it was too hot
as the hot, humid weather is here it still hasn’t stopped me from venturing outside and do my walks I try to stay on the streets with the most shade and also try to block my mind from how bad it is…most of the time it works it does keep me in shape even thoughContinue reading “so”

big improvement in the weather here, so i took a long walk. the air was warm, compare to the las two days, with overcast skies and with the wind coming off the ocean, brings the temperature down, but it didn’t stop me from pounding the bricks. today’s walk was beneficial, as i cleansed my head,Continue reading “Tuesday Evening”
Walking, which I do several times a day, helps keep me in shape, control my blood sugar levels, and air out my head. I will pound the sidewalks in most any type of weather, except when its pouring rain, and/or if the snow is coming down to hard.
Sunday, we got quite a bit of snow. Tuesday, more snow is on the way. Possible 3-5 inches is on tap. Hopefully, I’ll get a walk or two in, as I do like walking in it, as long as it is not windy and blowing in my face. That makes it a miserable time… wellContinue reading “More Snow”
Took a walk in earlier in the day. It was quite a slog navigating the snow covered sidewalks, hoping I wouldn’t come across any unexpected ice. Lady luck was with me, as I didn’t have any problems. The walking did wear me out a bit, as when I got back home, I was dragging myContinue reading “That Was Real”
Walking helps control my glucose levels, bodyweight and clears out the head. With that said, I feel good about my body and mind.
Walking on crunchy snow. Beautiful feeling.
I’m really liking the cleaner air, as it makes the walks more enjoyable.
When I took one of my evening strolls, I saw less than a half dozen people doing the same thing. As for traffic, that has gone down too. I could practically walk down the middle of what some are the busier streets in my city, and this is before sunset. Eerie! The one good thingContinue reading “Last Night”
Miserable, shitty weather, means I will resort to being the ‘hall monitor,’ thing, and do my walking in the halls and stairways. The plus side of it, is not having to wear a coat, and also get to smell the different aromas of the various meals, that are being concocted. Does it make me hungry,Continue reading “Walking Outdoors Is On Hold”
I was walking through the leaves. Falling from the trees. Feelin’ like a stranger nobody sees. ~Bob Dylan Love and Theft (2001)
