Virtual is nice, but real is so much better, don’t you think? So let’s all take a real wordless walk this weekend! If you’re in the NOLA area, you can join me this Saturday morning, March 24, at 9 a.m. at Jean Lafitte National Park at the Pecan Grove parking lot. Dress for the weather and be ready to get your feet wet or muddy. What a perfect way to slow down after the wildness of St. Patrick’s Day and Super Sunday, and celebrate the first official week of Spring!
And if you’re not close by, I have a cool proposal for this weekend: Go on your own wordless walk. Go by yourself or with a friend or two. Do it in your yard, or a nearby park, or even in the middle of the city. Take a photo or two of your beautiful setting or something wonderful you find and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll compile the images so we can share what we noticed. And tell me what happened when you were truly wordless and softened your vision and opened to all of your senses. I’ll be so excited to hear what you discover!
If you need to know how to take a wordless walk (but really, there are no rules) click here for some tips to get started: If you have a copy of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World by Martha Beck, you can read further about bringing yourself into wordlessness. Have fun and treat yourself to the peacefulness that comes with stilling your mind and drenching your senses. And I can’t wait to hear from you!
