On Today’s Walk

I love to get out and take a walk, especially when the sun is shining, the air is a little crisp, a light breeze is blowing and I am close to the water.  A solitary walk along by the river is a meditative experience, bringing my mind, my body, and the world into alignment. I walk in harmony with the world; I walk in beauty.

From our apartment door, I walk across Langley Park, cross the road, and I am on the River Walk alongside the Swan River.  The walkway is right beside the river, with no barriers against falling in.

I shared the walk with birds drying out after diving for fish.

I pass the pond, and walk as far as the bridge over to the little island.

I look across to the park on the island.  I think next time I will cross the bridge and explore the island.

Walking back, I look across to South Perth on the far shore of the river.

I listen to the wind rustle through the palm fronds.  I hear the call of birds, and the sound of the water lapping on the rocks.

I return home relaxed and refreshed.
