Walking shares with making and working that crucial element of engagement of the body and the mind with the world, of knowing the world through the body and the body through the world.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?” he whispered.
“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand. “I just wanted to be sure of you.”
~ A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
I’ll be back soon. In the meantime…
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
One of the noblest words in our language is “grace,” defined as “unearned blessing.” We live by grace far more than by anything else. Accordingly, I find that the one thing which I want to put into practice in my own life is the conscious and deliberate habit of finding someone to thank.
~ Elton Trueblood
Expressing gratitude ignites the light within us and is a sure path to joy. Gratitude is one of the highest vibrations of energy we can create, it’s free, and anyone can give it. It can be as simple as being thankful for soup, being thankful one can see, walk, wiggle a finger, or tap to a beat. One can be grateful for happy children, good neighbors, good luck, and simply being alive… Part of the journey toward joy involves not waiting around for trouble, but being continuously aware of our blessings.

Black and orange butterfly —
Wings like a nun’s hands:
First folded in prayer,
Then open in offering.
