Take a walk

Perhaps it is the sun pouring through my window.

Perhaps it is because Wednesday was Earth Day.

Perhaps it is because our Gospel lesson for Sunday tells of what happened to two of Jesus’ disciples as they walked to Emmaus.

Perhaps it is having been inside (for most of the time – I have stepped outs on a few occasions when deliveries arrived and to take some mail to the mailbox) since March 18.

Probably it is a combination of all those factors and more.

I want to take my camera and go to a park and take photos.
No need for anyone to find my doctor’s phone number and call her.
I will stay in. I will stay in.

I might look out the window more frequently today.

And I will share one photo that makes me smile.

The pond at Morningside Park has turtles, among other creatures.

One day, I caught them doing yoga.


What walks do you remember?

What made you smile as you walked?

What fed your spirit? What nurtured your soul?

Where might you walk today – in real life or in your imagination?

Earth Day and people of faith

“As stewards of the earth, humans are called by God to live sustainably and work toward creation care. We all have a part to play. This Earth Day, how will you live out God’s call?”
Check out Grace Ji-Sun Kim’s reflection on Earth Day (April 22).
