Most mornings, except for the brutal cold of winter, I walk about four miles at a park near our home. I’ve been doing it for about a dozen years. I try to go out early, before the park gets busy, because I like having it mostly to myself. Sometimes I’ll put on the headphones, sometimes I enjoy listening to the sounds of silence. Sometimes I take my bike. I could go to the gym, as I have in the past but then I wouldn’t have this……

this early in the day I think there’s a letter
missing at the softball
field. Not sure what
bat winging is.That’s better. Glad
we have that corrected.So I could probably go to the gym with dozens of other people who stare aimlessly at the TV screen as they run or walk on their treadmill. I could listen to them grunt as they pump iron or go through the circuits. There is nothing wrong with that. Exercise is important.
Besides, I like walking in the rain, on early summer days, or fall crisp mornings; days that are so beautiful you feel like you could eat them.
What about you? Where would you rather be?
Thanks for joining me on my morning walk.
