Boots made for Walking

  I love walking. I love conversation. Walking is perfectly designed for conversation. A communion of sorts. Walks become a release for sorting out things, a putting in order for what would otherwise remain scattered thoughts sown into the reality of life’s circumstances. Thoughts, which in content, are sometimes trivial, sometimes deep, at times weighty, … Continue reading Boots made for Walking

Change

Change. There is a phonetical ring in its cadence. Yet, we often resist the weight of it. Life is a continuous flux of change. There are faces of change, burdens of change, adventurous change, and life altering change. We experience change. The changing of the seasons, sudden change, and sometimes the slow to change. Time … Continue reading Change
