Walking Away With Lily ….

Sometimes on a Holiday Monday or a Sunday, I like to walk away the “stuff “cluttering up my body and my mind.  To me walking and running have always been a moving meditation, and on days when my schedule permits I make as much time for that moving meditation as I like.

My faithful companion Lily and I headed out at 5:15, into the early morning mist that was bordering on rain.  You could hear it softly in the trees and feel it lightly on your face … perfect!!!

We walked through years this morning, as always, shedding “stuff” along the way … feeling lighter all the time.

At about the 6:45 mark we found ourselves at the Central High School Flats, the place where my accident during Track & Field practice started my Yoga practice, 47 years ago.  That fateful long jump pit is still there.  Lily and I couldn't resist.  We did a Victory Lap around the track!!!  Every night after school I ran 2 miles around that track … oops, showing my age … I ran 3.21 kilometers around that track.

Heading home …

Arrived home 7:20 with Lily … well deserved shower … much lighter … on with my week!!!
