Some weekend mornings I get up and go for a walk. I’m not sure I should be walking very far on my stress fracture at this phase of my healing, but I am very careful every other day and sometimes I need to be outside. There is always the temptation to break into a run but I resist and instead focus on practicing the art of shinrin yoku.
There is still snow in the woods so the footing is unsteady at times but there is also melting happening and the wild windy sky and buds on the branches.
It was a moving meditation and then I walked up to a barren crest and sat for awhile. Sometimes you speak and other times you listen.
What you seek is seeking you. -Rumi
