The walk today was so refreshing. I find more and more that, through meditation and mindful walking, I’m paying attention to the changing leaves, the quality of the air, the blue sky.
I felt so grateful just to be alive and breathing. I thought about the recent victims of violence in Paris, Beirut, and elsewhere, and how they are no longer able to walk the way I do, breathing the fresh air. Today I walked for them.
