Value of a Walk, by Thoreau

Background photo February 2020

Grateful for morning walks still--I come back with so much more than when I went out. Perspective, inspiration, writing ideas, insight, renewed hope, sorting through the muddles, prayer--so many benefits. Yes, I vote with Thoreau--moving the legs makes the thoughts flow, and in a good way. How about you, does walking/being outside help open the spigot of helpful insights for you? 


  1. I love to walk. Most days I take a long walk around Midtown, and it does have such a relaxing and inspirational effect on me. Another outdoor activity I love is working in the garden, even when it's only pulling weeds. After I've worked in the yard I just feel so content and happy. I hope you and all your loved ones are well. Take care and stay safe.

    1. Nice to hear from you, Elizabeth--and glad that walks and being outdoors is so inspirational for you, too. In these times, we who can get out are so blessed. I posted this shortly before the shutdowns began but am glad I am in an area where there isn't much traffic and I can still go out. We are well, thank you. And may I take this opportunity to say congratulations on your chapbook "Saudade." I have my copy and am enjoying it very much! Your poetry is beautiful :-)
