Well, as you can see, I thought it was about time to freshen up my blog. It's been a while and sometimes change is good. There was a time when I updated the header to suit my mood, the time of the year, or the holidays. Though I probably won't do that, I will still do some tweaking. Changing the layout was taking way too long to get just right, so for now, I will leave it as is.
We had another day of gorgeous weather which I took full advantage of by walking for an hour and a half this morning.
Though I love the weather this time of the year and the fact that everything is growing and blooming, I still can't adjust to early nightfall. We have the same 24 hours in the day and yet it just feels different. Lots of people here walk at night, but when I walk, I am not just doing it for the exercise, I am doing it for the experience. I want to see and explore.
With the first step, the number of shapes the walk might take is infinite, but then the walk begins to define itself as it goes along, though freedom remains total with each step: any tempting side road can be turned into an impulse, or any wild patch of woods can be explored. The pattern of the walk is to come true, is to be recognized, discovered.

We go back to school Sunday and I will miss these long meandering mornings, but am hoping to find time for some quick afternoon walks.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
