I dream of hiking into my old age. I want to be able even then to pack my load and take off slowly but steadily along the trail.
~ Marlyn Doan
The sole criteria is to walk with the senses, with hands that feel, ears that hear, and eyes that see.
~ Robert Browne
We have invented exercise, recreation, pleasure, amusement, and the rest. But recreation, pleasure, amusement, fun, and all the rest are poor substitutes for joy; and joy, I am convinced, has its roots in something from which civilization tends to cut us off. Some awareness of the world outside of man must exist if one is to experience the happiness and solace which some of us find in an awareness of nature and in our love for her manifestations.
~ Joseph Wood Krutch, U.S. literary naturalist, 1893-1970
We go back to nature every time we take a deep breath and stop worrying.
~ Bliss Carmen
I’m not sure what we’re doing today. We didn’t plan ahead for Saturday other than making the decision to wing it. I’ll be back tomorrow, either with another scheduled post or live and in person if we arrive home before the scheduled post goes out. I hope your weekend is going well. 🙂
