When thinking about what my dream job would look like for about the millionth time, I came up with walking. I love to walk. I'm not sure if this is even possible, but why not try? What else am I doing (aside from everything). But I figure in today's modern world where sex tapes make you famous, there are professional life coaches, and gas costs over $4.00 a gallon, anything is possible.
Walking for me is meditation. I walk off stress, I walk to explore my surroundings, and I walk for exercise. Some of my most enduring memories are of family hikes in the woods of central NJ, getting blissfully lost in foreign cities, and even watching the events of 9/11 happening in front of my eyes while walking into work and into a new reality for America.
This blog is an experiment on many levels. Since moving from NYC to LA three years ago, I have found it challenging to incorporate walking into my life as it was in New York. This car culture was a shock to my system resulting in weight gain, increased stress, and growing back issues. It's hard to believe that I was healthier in New York City than I've ever been since moving to sunny California, but there it is.
This blog will chronicle my efforts to exercise my physical well being, my mental attitude, and my writing abilities. I make no promises on any of these, but each journey starts with that first step, and this is mine.
