Day 324, November 30

When we need these healing times, there is nothing better than a good long walk. It is amazing how the rhythmic movements of the feet and legs are so intimately attached to cobweb cleaners in the brain. ~ Anne Wilson Schaef

We all need healing times.  Whether we are grieving or whether we are just trying to get through a hard day, we need healing.

As the author of the above says, a long walk can do what other things cannot.  The act of putting one foot in front of the other, that simple but important movement works to un-muddy our thoughts and to remind us of the miracle of our bodies.

Maybe your thoughts are never muddy.  Not so mine.  They swirl around in a murky mess, tangling and twining and twirling. Walking and writing and, of course, praying are the best ways I know to put them in focus again.

Joy for today:  clearing my mind with walking.
