    I Could Walk For Miles

    I walk everywhere and people think i`m crazy. I walk to and from work , around 8 miles round trip. If i need to go into town i walk there and back despite cries of catch the Bus by concerned non walkers. I walk absolutely everywhere and feel all the better for it.

    Just Starting:

    I have just started walking to improve my health and found it to be very soothing, and mental stimulating...I tend to get bored easily. So I vary the places where I walk. I do some mind games and prayers while I walk to keep it intresting. I want to be able to keep it up even...

    Along The Banks Of A River

    It's so peaceful whenever I can escape my present situation to just walk along the banks of a river. Usually it's the Mississippi. Whenever I am fortunate enough to find a way to get there, it fills me with peace and contentment. I can leave the memories of a broken heart and...

    Just For Encouragement

    I retired a couple of years ago and found that after I had got all the jobs around the house done I took things easy. My job had been stressful and physical so the  break left a certain void in my life. I found myself taking the occasional snack and sitting about a lot more than...

    Nature And The City.

    I love walking anywhere and everywhere. Just yesterday I walked downtown for 5 hours in the rain. It makes me feel alive and connected with the world. I love observing its beauty and uniqueness; from graffiti to trees it can all be wonderful. It gives me time to think, and...

    on a clear night

    I like to walk at night, it gives me time to collect my thoughts.  I also like the calories I burn.  The other night I was listening to some music and on a normal route, but took a wrong turn and got very confused when I realized it.

    Best Place To Think

    I moved to a new place a couple of years ago and I'd lived there for a year before I discovered what great walks there are nearby. I've found that walking really does help you to think about things as well as giving you exercise, so you get a double benefit. I haven't been for a...

    A New Age

    These days a lot of things seem to be getting overrated. The materialism of the world is getting out of control and children's self esteem are being destroyed because the way they look or what they own. It's about time parents made it clear to their children that it's the nature...

    Sometimes I like to walk by myself

    and just think. I listen to the world around me (mostly because I walk in the woods). Walking is a good way to work though life obstacles.

    I love walking.  I just put on my CD and head out, it is so relaxing.  I wish I lived near a park though, so I could enjoy nature and it's beauty.  The only part of walking that I do not like is living in the city.  So there is lot's of traffic, smog and...

    Just stumbled upon an app on my phone

    that tracks all the steps I take/equates it to distance too (in km), the other day. In just the last 2 days alone, 90% at work, I've covered approximately 45km.. Now that's the reason I mainly get weary 😆

    Last weekend, I decided to walk to the nearest store in my neighborhood (which is about 3 miles round trip) so I didn't have to use my fuel.. Turns out, I pretty much like walking to get stuff anyway, it doesn't have to be about fuel, or anything car related. The only set back is...

    Walking Today~

    I love walking! There is earth below, there is sky above, no folly, and no frills. There is only the whisper of the contents of my very own soul. There is not the pretense of prayer, public or private, only the awareness of myself as a wondrous, ponderous share of nature that is...

    I don't jog so I walk. I love to walk especially at dawn, in the morning, or late afternoon. It's the time of  day when the weather is cool and the wind blows. My son does the routine with me when I am home. Sometimes in the evening when there are more stars in the sky and the...

    A Nice Walk

    I Walk A Lot (poem)

    I walk a lot. They say it's good for the health. I walk a lot. It gives me time to think. I walk a lot. They say you get slimmer.  I walk a lot. It's enjoyable. I walk a lot. Over all it is beneficial to your health and to your mind. I smoke cigarettes when I walk.
