A daily walk

July 29th, 2014, 11am

It was 26°C with scattered clouds. The breeze was gentle.

Skies. Paths leading where we know not. Sometimes when I wake up. I walk. I just take a path without really worrying about where exactly it leads. The purpose of the walk is to walk; feeling the earth through my feet, through my flip flops; my whole being complies. It’s therapeutic. Walking. Anytime I do it, I feel more alive, I feel more at home with the earth. Everything is so spacious and stands out free. All my thoughts and cares go away… there are no more cares because they are all fleeting, as I feel the cool wind of the dawn rush on my face. I walk for 30 minutes straight. And then walk back. I take a shower in the bath house under the pear tree… with sunlight spearing through the leaves. I immediately feel in touch with nature.I remember the need to bless the lesser spirits; I bless the pear tree for it’s sweet cover and say a thank you for the soothing effect my bathing water has on my body. It’s been a walking day and it’s going to be a sunshine day.

Shu, Christine and David Wade said thanks.

I write. I sketch. I mull over things and I think about alternatives. http://incitedrafts.wordpress.com @sammidelali
