A Slow Walk

When you walk very slowly, you get to see things. I did this tonight.

It's better than doing drugs or watching television. Just making yourself walk real slow is like a meditation.

Forcing yourself to slow down is fascinating. It reminds you of how hard you've been pushing.

It also reminds you of how lovely everything is...but you just haven't seen it in a while.

In my particular neighborhood, there are many old buildings with interesting wrought iron work and unique stained glass windows and doors. Real people from about eighty years ago made these things. I think they are so nice.

This reminds me of 'The Power of Now' by Eckhart Tolle. You are onto something here.

Walk slow? Yeah. OK.

Gotta run....
