a thousand delicate joys.

Standard

out for a family stroll

 

“walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things.

it is the one way of freedom.

if you go to a place on anything but your own feet

you are taken there too fast,

and miss a thousand delicate joys

that were waiting for you by the wayside. “

-elizabeth von arnim

when walking in the park

crisp.

last night’s walk in the park

 

“it is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.

this crisp winter air is full of it.”

“your cadence is your music” – william shatner

Standard

on a walk in the beautiful early fall weather

taking in a bit of the world 

listening to music

a man came up beside me to say

‘you have quite a cadence.’

something i’d never heard or considered

 such a funny compliment 

and happily noted.

“to brisk notes in cadence beating, glance their many-twinkling feet.”

pizza on the move.

Standard

 

crossed paths with a pizza out for a stroll

 on a mission

 headed for the river

 pizza was sliced and ready

to float

to swim

to shoot the cascades

 perfect conditions today for a pizza.

 

“the closest thing I use to beauty products is the grease on the pizza from John’s Pizzeria.”

sun.

Standard

(no explanation about the alien orb)

 

that moment when you are walking

 ‘here comes the sun’ clicks on 

 the sun returns

as it always eventually does

the universe in alignment. 

“truth is like the sun. you can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”
