WALKING THE PADDOCKS

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate WALKING. They are considering walking the perimeter of the property despite the brown snake threat and the steepness of the terrain. The paddock is newly slashed and the ground is not too muddy and walking is a possibility.

“The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking, and
the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage
through a series of thoughts. The creates an odd consonance between
internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is
also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it.
A new thought often seems like a feature of the landscape that was
there all along, as though thinking were traveling rather than making.”
– Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking

Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy
of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the
fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort
which life implies.
– Eric Fromme

When temptations comes, I don’t say, “Yes,” and I don’t say, “No,” I say, “Later.” I just keep walking the Red Road–down the middle. When you’re in the middle, you don’t go to either extreme. You allow both sides to exist.” ~Dr. A. C. Ross~Lakota

Walking With Grandpa
~Author Unknown

I like to walk with Grandpa
His steps are short like mine
He doesn’t say “Now Hurry Up!”
He always takes his time.
Most people have to hurry
They do not stop and see.
I’m Glad that God made Grandpa
“Unrushed” and young like me.

Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.
Elizabeth Stone

“Poetry is to prose as dancing is to walking”

John Wain

It is wonderful when one is out with these animals, how attached they become. There are times when I would walk up to my horse, that he would nicker in a low tone and ruh his nose against me in a very knowing manner.
~HS Young

Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.
