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?

I is for Imagine

Should you develop a jones for ice cream,
or many other treats
simply stop by the Cantina
where you can find your fill of sweets.

Of course you cannot see any ice cream
in this photo; the corner of the shake machine,
but no ice cream.

That’s why the word is “imagine.”

The moment

For days beyond counting, he had
wondered,
imagined,
dreamed
of the moment.

To his delight, to his surprise,
when the moment finally arrived, it
surpassed wonder,
outstripped imagination,
exceeded dreams.

Now memory ever gently
mingles with wonder,
stirs imagination,
fills dreams,
until the next moment.
