MY PLACE TO QUIETLY CONTEMPLATE LIFE…..

It struck me the other day how small my world has become since owning two hounds.  Before I had them, I’d walk around town or along the beach every day, not only for the exercise, but to be amongst people.

Now, I go to the park.  Every morning.  I walk, they run, play, sniff, explore, then they run some more.   Sometimes I am out two hours, sometimes longer,  depending on what the rest of the day has in store.

Sometimes I sit, like yesterday, and just be.  Everyone needs time to be calm and the park is that place for me, I love our time there, and so do the dogs!

Often, after a long walk, I don’t feel like going out again if I don’t have any chores or engagements, and I realised yesterday that yes, my world has got smaller, but also richer.  I am very fortunate.

Where do you go to just be?

    I don’t really have a place anymore. Since we’ve moved, and that was a year and a half ago. How have I gone this long??? This is a thought provoking post. I’m going to find one by next week. Thanks!

    I like spending time taking a walk along the riverbanks behind our house, observing green leaves, flowers, birds, and insects, and ‘just being.’
    Have a great day!

    Mine has always been inside my head and the advantage is that, so far, it’s always come with me wherever I go.
    Mind you, there are parts of Richmond park that add significantly to the internal experience..
    Nice pictures and a good talking point.
