The sun was shining brightly today and that inspired me to go on my Power walk. My tunes turned up I started around the walking trail. On the third time around I decided to put my IPod away and listen to the sounds I would hear. There were many.
I always start my walk with prayers. I call this my “God Talk”. When I am done praying and talking I focused on the sounds.
The birds singing so beautifully as if they were telling me “Spring is on its way.”
A few crows were around. The sea gulls seemed to be answering each other. They remind me so much of the Ocean when my Hubby and I lived on the Island.
The sound of children and their laughter touches my heart.
Little girl on her trike and the other child on a squeaky swing.
The pitter patter of a toddler running.
A tiny voice from an elderly woman saying, “Good Morning” to me.
The cars on the road could be heard from a distance.
The rustling of the leaves.
As I neared the end of my walk I spotted two rabbits, and they had never been seen at this park. An elderly gentlemen and I said a few words about them. I said to him, “Boy oh boy. If there are two, there will soon be more.” We both chuckled.
When I checked my pedometer, I was pleased I had walked 8002 steps.
I was amazed what I could hear when I really focused.
A memorable walk for me!!
