I've been a walker most of my life.
I come from a family who thinks nothing
of crossing the city I grew up in on foot
...and most members still do.
Because of this, I have been able to observe life
at a pace that cars
just won't allow.
I still love walking today.
This becomes a particularly amazing practice
in Upstate New York.
It is a feast for the senses:
colors for the eyes,
the scent of newly fallen leaves for the nose,
the call of flocks migrating
and rushing waters for the ears,
the feel of crisp dried leaves
in your hands
under your feet,
and the taste of region's many apple varieties
...awakens the senses to see the goodness of God everywhere.
Wherever you live, take time to enjoy
life at a walker's pace today!
You're senses will be glad you did!
