Dana Warren Solo Hike 2015

Mind & Body: I am a part of it all

The Outfitters - Saturday, August 01, 2015

As I near the end of this journey I find myself thinking about very little.

As I walk along my mind is mostly vacuous. It's like the wind blows through my thoughts. My eyes pick up on the colours around me: greens of every shade, pink pops of flowers, yellow happy, white delights of daisies, purple passionate, and a rare blue sky.

I smell nature, animals, pungent bodies, rotting decay, ocean of my heart, and succulent wild roses. Sounds are everywhere. Birdsong sing keeps me company, gurgling brooks and rivers, frogs and toads forever present, and little squirrels squealing. I am here apart of the mix. 

The sound of my bear bell is my chant and I shake along. Even when I try to find lyrics to unlock the "monotony" (which is so very rare) I find myself at a loss for the words. My retrieval mechanism has shut down. I sing "Johnny Appleseed" everyday. I make up my own version. I have to remind myself to take pictures and I've done a mediocre job of it along the way. Frankly, I'm ok with that. I am soaking in this pleasure even when my feet are numb and taking the next step brings pain. My ongoing fantasy as the day ends and the kilometers are mounting is that I can float. I picture myself walking a few inches above the ground. My feet are in rough shape but everyday this body serves me. Walking is hard. It's a physical toll on the body and I am pushing my personal limits. Yet here I am today in the company of my very good friends here at The Fisher's Loft, held up by wind and rain. 

Even though I need to rest, I yearn to walk. I am not deep thinking. I am a fulcrum for the sights and the sounds of the world around me. They twist in and out of me as I make my way. 

My life is not complicated. I am a part of it all, body and mind.

Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic
but I had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours require a lot of work?
I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary daily.
I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share
my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it!

Every few minutes Firefox tries to open a site. Because I just got a Trojan off my computer. So the link to the virus does not work anymore but Firefox keeps trying to open it. It says it cannot display this webpage. So how do I stop this?.

(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.) commented on 28-Feb-2016 11:33 AM
