Exploring your neighborhood promises surprises. Set out on foot.

One positive change taking place across the globe is our having extra time to be present in our surroundings. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to appreciate our predecessors’ past.

Whether you are descended from the culture that lived in your area, or you are learning about their lifestyles now that you settled down, you made a choice on a subconscious level to continue their story. What can you bring to the table? How can you contribute to the foundations laid by your predecessors?

Keep in mind that although this is a time where we feel more isolated even if we have family by our sides, we are all here for a community purpose. Our individual paths build together a viable future. Change only takes place when as a community we decide to move in a different direction.

Finding the right choices can be hit or miss. A shortcut comes from connecting with our neighborhood’s past tribulations and resolutions. Each of us is helping one another in this global process for improvement.

Walking Pleasures

Our changing times has prompted a re-awakening. It has allowed us the opportunity to return to the simpler life. Despite the inconveniences, and forgetting the isolation, the sidewalks are becoming more populated with walkies.

When I was growing up, I’d walk from early in the morning until dark. I’d go as far as I could imagine, in every direction. Sometimes the concrete would be hot on my bare feet. I’d get a sunburn. I explored roads too narrow for a car, and find pastures I never noticed otherwise.

In the past few months, I have returned to taking long walks. Each outing reveals unexpected treats. This hawk created delight in walkers when he was spotted perched above a pond. Noticing the beautiful anomalies in nature trains our minds to think creatively.

The fresh air clears the sinuses and lungs, as well as the head. It’s good to get outside, especially when germs are brooding indoors.

If you ever feel overwhelmed, or bored, or restless, consider the exercise that treats the body, mind and spirit. Go for a walkie, and note which treats you discover.
