    On The Face Of It

    This seems incompatible with my existing experience of "I Dislike Going Outside".  In reality this is just one of the contradictions that makes me human.  The fact is, once I'm outside I love it. I like to see stuff and see people and breathe the air, and just plain...

    I like to be alone. It's something

    that I need to recharge after an entire day filled with people and conversations and proper behavior. I feel like I'm not really myself until I've had time to process and ponder and settle into the day by myself. I take walks by myself around the neighborhood in the evening. It...

    Nothing better then a walk while it is snowing. To bad it never snows here.

    I like to take long walks.

    . A lone soul at heart both by disposition and distance of situation. Someone affectionately, though aptly named them my 'Lonely walks' and I have since referred to them as such. It's an odd thing and a vicious cycle to be so lonely to seek solitude, Yet the walking meditation...

    One of My Simplest Pleasures

    My only problem with this activity is that I sometimes have to nudge myself out the door.  Once I get going, however, I'm okay.  This is one of the simplest pleasures there is, and it can be done practically anywhere.  To me, it is one of the little things I can...

    Every Day

    Every day I like taking walks.... long ones. Its hard now that I live in the city, I much prefer walks in the woods. Its even harder now that it is summer - I much prefer walks unmarred by the noise of people, in the dark... autumn walks are the best, followed by winter...

    Today I took the first of what I hope will be

    many, many more walks to come. I've decided I'm not going to let things continue on this way any longer, and on my days off, I'm going to take walks around my neighborhood, and work my way outward around the town and to the park, and slowly move on to the parks of other towns...

    Walks Walks Walks

    I love taking walks. Its a boring job guarding hades gates to the underworld, the only fun thing about hades gate is that I can chase after the dead souls that try to escape. There are sometimes mean living humans that trick me and get inside the underworld. So taking walks is my...

    I Like Walks Or Should I Say Hikes.

    Walking anywhere is great, but it becomes something very special when it becomes a hike in a beautiful location. One of my favorite things to do is to hike in National Parks and other places endowed with the beauty of nature. Walking in these places does something nothing else...

    Clearing My Head

    I walk when I need to think.  The longer the walk, the more I have to think.  I should be taking a really long walk this weekend then.

    Great Walk

    Let's see...one of the best walks I ever went on was during a summer shower. We live kinda out in the country so I just put on some swiming trunks and headed off into the rain. I took a trail thru the woods that opened up into a cleared area. It was so beautiful. The rain had...

    There is just something calming about walking anywhere you want, no aim or direction, just going where your feet take you. Into the woods, over the mountains, through the city, to grandmothers house! (lol). I find it relaxing :) Especially in the crisp air of the fall.

    In the Spring & Fall

    ~ In the spring because everything is new & precious. I enjoy watching the lawns come back to life & the flowers begin to bud. I love going to the beach down Broderick Lane & just sitting on an old log, watching the tides come in. The smells of the ocean are so...

    Walks Are A Small Form

    Of the way writing makes me feel sometimes. I love when I go on walks, and it's solitary. But also, I love to take walks with others. If you want to see me at my best, you take me for a long walk to somewhere I haven't explored. I like to take walks to calm down, to just do...
