I am so lucky to be able to walk places like this in my little city. I really value all the quiet country-ish spaces tucked away in our mostly urban landscape.
That being said, here are some thoughts from my walk this morning:
-I spend a big chunk of my time looking at the pretty colors and truly enjoying the quiet. I spend the rest of my time wondering how long it will take them to find my body (I've watched too much Law & Order).
-Everyone I pass going faster than me is obviously not going as far as me (especially those runner people). #LiesITellMyselfSoIKeepMoving
-The same goes for those that are dressed cuter and are less sweaty/gross. Obviously they are just out for a stroll.
-I try to embrace the nature, but it's so hard because BUGS! But...I try. My Grandma loved nature (Happy Birthday, Grandma!) and so I think I should too. I stop and take photos of them every so often, so I guess that counts, right?
Counted 14 of these guys the other day
-Why do people sit in their car for long periods of time in Park parking lots? How many traveling business-people can their be? Do they not have offices? Are they drifters? Are they napping? This is both a valid question of mine and paranoia from the Law & Order habit.
-There is another park I walk at sometimes that I have named "The Old People Park." I always leave smiling when I go there because seeing a bunch of older couples walking around holding hands is sweet. Also, it's a great confidence boost when the old guys tell you that you are moving like lightening...even if they are in their late 80s.
