Going for a walk, despite its physical distancing obstacles, can still be great. For me, it isn’t as great as going for a bike ride, but that isn’t a fair comparison. When the bike is really humming, you might appreciate the landscape in its broad beauty, but there are details that you would miss.
Out for a walk on Saturday, my girlfriend stopped to admire several things that I have passed numerous times, but failed to take notice of. These were nature things like odd groupings of wild flowers and rivers that I had only seen one side of. She even found beautiful flowers outside a convenience store I have never set foot in. She stopped to take pictures–all of which were quite good.
It was so great to see my little corner of the world through someone-else’s eyes. Her mood was infectious and I was glad to see that what had been familiar really wasn’t that familiar. That’s a pretty easy call for Today’s Perfect Moment.
