|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.
