Simply Walking. Good Medicine.

There really is no better medicine for 
my body
my soul
my mind
than a simple walk.

I see the beauty in the everyday stuff that always surrounds me.

I appreciate the fresh air.
Erin walks on water.
She cracks the crisp ice.
We laugh at the turkeys 
that cackle back to her 
when she calls out to them.

We discover scores of heart shaped stones
and have a conversation
of what they might represent.

Our ranch cats tag along.

We find a "wooly worm"
and she makes it a habitat
in a jar.

I breathe better.
My mind is clearer.
My gratitude is higher.
My body is happy.

Just a walk.
Good medicine.
