Taking a Walk
I’d had about enough today, after mooning around, doing laundry, uselessly worrying.
Going forward I’ll have Mondays and Tuesdays free — they’ll be my weekends. Kinda cool when the weather cooperates like it did this afternoon.
So decided on the long walk — far afield. Oh, how delightful.
Silence isn’t the problem, the sky says.
So I wait and listen and take a couple more steps.
I discover The Letters of the Younger Pliny, and stop to talk with a local chef who is also a friend, outside of his home (he was enjoying the weather, too).
“I am told by the soothsayers that I must rebuild the temple of Ceres, which stands on my property…”
— Pliny the Younger, in a letter to Mustius
These days, walking and walking, until my feet ache. It feels good. I like being outside in the world.
