    I Feel As If I Am Turning Into My Father

    My father is quite the hiker.  Last Christmas, we went out to the park (It's a natural preserve in the woods with trails) and we went for a long walk in the woods.  My father is 72 years old and I could barely keep up with him!   He also goes to the...

    Alone With My Thoughts

    I always find that when on long walks, I prefer walking alone. It gives me time to be alone with my thoughts. I love it, true, I don't get a chance often enough to go on long walks. But, I find it always to be a pleasureable experience that I always look back at and think 'What a...

    Walking At Night, Alone

    I rarely observe a vicinity from a distant, confined window without a persuading curiosity to venture out into it.I typically entertain the luring call to explore, if I have the chance.I feel that with each progressive step, I am further from my prison. The atmosphere becomes...

    I want this too... I want all of it.

    I want the pointless bickering, the long walks, the last night phone calls, the good morning text messages. I want cute pictures with you, to hold your hand, to make food for you just to call you baby. The joking, the wrestling the fights, the long how I fell texts after we...

    Meanderings

    I love a good long walk. During the summer I went for a walk with my friends Robert and Manon across from my home village over towards the Bois du Vicomte. It was a lovely hot day, and both Manon and I wore only bikini bras and light shorts. Robert wore shorts and a football...

    At Some Point, It Is Automatic

    I enjoy that feeling, after I've been walking a while, and my legs just keep going. Perhaps it has been hours even. I may know where I am, it may be familiar, or not. I didn't even notice the passing of time.
