I went for a walk today. I haven’t walked that far in a long time. I’m guessing it’s around three and a half miles. My Fitbit is dead so I didn’t wear it. Next time I’ll wear it and measure.
My walk was beautiful. Nature and silence.
This is my word for Week 10.
I call my walks my walking meditation. I walk and breathe. I look around as I concentrate on my breathe.
In and out. In and out.
Random thoughts comes in. I acknowledge them and let them go.
My walk was very peaceful.
My meditations aren’t perfect. Today something that made me angry come up. I talked it through in my head, screamed a bit and let it go. Good thing was I could scream. Not a lot of house around. It felt good to scream.
I would like to start meditating more but that is another post…
Here some pics I took. Yes I sometimes got lost in the beauty surrounding me.
This last pic is the same river as the first pic maybe a mile down the road.
My favorite is the farm pic. You can see the cows by the barn. I love it. Thank you farmers!
I didn’t realize how much I missed my walks. I sometimes walk around the college but it’s not the same.
There’s nothing like walking on a country road. The birds are chirping. Chipmunks are climbing trees. There’s nothing around except farm fields and silence.
It’s so calming.
I love the river. I have driven over the bridge 50 times on my way to the dump, but never looked at the river. It was so pretty glistening in the sun.
I’m not drawing a picture today. Instead I’m giving you a real country road. And, yes, the hill was a bitch to walk up.
Silence in God’s Country.
