Daily Walks

The beginning of my walk...
I have walked my neighborhood daily


since I moved here eleven years ago.


Now that I am a week away
from my move date of June 6,



the number of walks remaining
for me to take,
is an easy estimate.


Neighborhood walks are one of the things
I will miss most when I move.


Whether it's a short power walk,


or a long, leisure saunter,


my morning walk is 
like my first cup of coffee
in the morning.


It's my kick start to the day.


It's my time for clearing my head
and organizing my day.


My walks and I are en sync.


It's my time for daydreaming
and gathering inspiration,


and keeping an eye on favorite houses.


On my walks,


I watch what's growing anew,


since the day before.


There are many gifted gardeners in this neighborhood.


Their effort are truly appreciated by this walker.


I have had the pleasure
of meeting many of my neighbors
on my walks.


And their dogs,


and occasionally cats.




My hope is the new owners
of my well loved home,
will discover the
joys of walking the
Tree Street neighborhood
as much as I have.

I love your beautiful walks! Will you walk in your new neighborhood?
My neighborhood is no where near as scenic as yours, but I have been walking it for over 50 years and I hope I continue to walk for many more. I used to walk every day and I need to get back to doing that.
Blessings on your move and new home....

Girl, I STILL miss my morning walks/runs in our old neighborhood. It's just not the same here, but I think you will find joy in your new one, too. blessings ~ tanna

I can identify with everything you wrote about your morning walks. I love my neighborhood and have walked every day (unless there is a storm with lightening or ice on the street) for over 25 years. It is the way I start my day and I it is so therapeutic. I am getting ready to put my house on the market and finding a neighborhood where I can continue my morning walks is one of the most important items on my "must have" list. Love seeing all your renovations and look forward to seeing how you settle in this new home. Everything you have shown is just wonderful!
