|The way in.|
Now even older, I need to walk. A few summers ago I started walking through my neighbourhood and beyond on a regular basis during the summer. I loved being out in the fresh air staring at the blue skies while I walked. I listened to either James Blunt or Elton John while I walked. I had time to think; to process the events of the day and prepare myself for the days to come.Then we got a dog which meant walking during the rest of the seasons as well. The city opened up a special trail for us to walk, cycle, or ride horses on for exercise and enjoyment, and of course there are many parks and trails in the area which I can visit year round if I need to walk in solitude, surrounded only by chickadees and squirrels and the nattering of blue jays.
