Quote of the day

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.” ― Jim Morrison

Walking

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.” ― John Muir, John of the Mountains: The Unpublished Journals of John Muir

Walking has been my saviour during the pandemic.

I've been blessed — on so many levels.

But it's hardly new: I've been a walker all my life. In fact, when I look back on my sullen and broken childhood, it's the one thing that kept me sane and out of harm's way.

Isn't that wonderful — on a human level at least? 

To think that taking one step after another — in my case, around, mostly, the quiet Devon lanes — has soothed so much of my troubled soul, and allowed me to arrive at a place of grace and forgiveness.

Of course, walking is not for everyone, but I can't think of anything better. And it's free, save the expense of a half-decent coat, a pair of walking shoes and a hat.
