The Wisdom of Walking Away

The Wisdom of Walking Away

…wet road…but the sun is up…cold wind blowing…walking meditatively…then a bird…eyed it for a couple of minutes…aimed my camera…flew away…did several clicks before it disappeared…the wisdom of just letting go…an inward teaching…and then I walked away with streaming thoughts and lots of questions…

    I think Virgilio, that a walk with you would be a very pleasant experience!

    • …same here, Chris. hope we can do it. i imagine Basho and Thoreau and John Muir…and that of the ancient Japanese and Chinese sages and poets who walked silently under the cover of clouds and fog…
