As I was walking with a neighbor through my neighborhood and hers, we were talking about the huge old trees in the yards. These trees are much older than we are, and have seen many seasons come and go.
As she is already into her 50s and farther along life's journey, she was sharing some advice with me.
And my advice to share with my newest walking friend? When life is feeling heavy, put on some good walking shoes, call a friend and head on out!
Nothing ever seems as bad when you're outside and breathing fresh air.
Some evening walks are shared with the big owl!
And some days, like today, are more of a celebration of being fit and able to walk and talk and enjoy the beauty of this Earth!
And so I walk on...
