WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES
Over the past few years I have become enchanted with the phenomenon of "being present". Not an easy thing to do in a world infused with nonstop media and images blaring at us every second. As a matter of routine I have run a mile almost everyday of my adult life. Recently I have taken to walking that mile. At first I found myself making "to do" lists while on this walk... then I would begin to worry about past or future events in my life. One day I came across this beautiful yellow flower sitting on the sidewalk just waiting to be seen. I spent a few minutes looking at the flower and then decided to take a photo of it on my Iphone. Each day I would look forward to what could be seen on the sidewalks while walking. There is so much excitement, beauty, wonderment and curious items left on sidewalks each day. I invite you to take a moment to view some of my recent sidewalk moments.
