Let’s take a walk. You can show me some of your memories and I’ll show you some of mine.
~ Adam Berlin, Number of Missing
Who can open the door who does not reach for the latch?
Who can travel the miles who does not put one foot
in front of the other, all attentive to what presents itself
Who will behold the inner chamber who has not observed
with admiration, even with rapture, the outer stone?
Well, there is time left —
fields everywhere invite you into them.
And who will care, who will chide you if you wander away
from wherever you are, to look for your soul?
~ Mary Oliver, excerpted from Have You Ever Tried to Enter the Long Black Branches?, West Wind: Poems and Prose Poems
This is it. The official Walktober plant your link or pingback here post. In other words, please link to this post in some way with your Walktober post. It makes it easier for me if they are all in one place. There are, of course, all kinds of other linky type things to help me do this, but I prefer the old fashioned method. I’m a luddite that way.
Reminder. Our dates this year are October 11th through the 25th. If you want to get your walk in later (or if you want to use one from earlier), go for it. Just let me know if it’s later since I’ll need to extend the dates. I am aiming for October 29th as the date I do the wrap-up. My alternative date is November 1st.
Please join us. It’s always so much fun. If you’re not familiar with Walktober, there’s a link over in the sidebar that will take you to a post that will introduce you to it. Or, you can click on this: Walktober. It’s an old post but it gives you the general idea.
Thanks for stopping by today. I might be back later in the week with a regular post. In the meantime…
Have a great walk, ride, swim, skate, or whatever you have decided to do for your Walktober this year. And please be safe, be well, and enjoy the beauty of wherever you find yourself.
A few of the 10,000 reasons to be happy: 1,881) Celebrating goddesses. 1,882) The way the light dances on the water and through the leaves of the trees. 1,883) Rain. We didn’t get as much as we need, but we did get some and I am thankful for that. 1,884) The official start to Walktober. I’m looking forward to seeing where you go. 1,885) M, always and forever.
