"If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk." ~Raymond Inmon
One of the reasons I love walking is that it's really an awesome sensory experience. I really enjoyed my walk this morning, despite that it was 17 degrees out.
I wanted to share with you a few of the things I enjoyed this morning:
I love living in Colorado. We actually have seasons here. This weekend we had a bit of blowing snow- so this morning the world looked like it was covered in diamonds. Everywhere you looked it sparkled.
I love that I'm the first footprints in the fallen snow:
Start and Finish:
More then anything I heard the snow crunching under my feet. Once it gets below 20- the snow really starts to crackle. The birds were singing this morning, including this lovely: You can hear it's call if you click "typical voice"- http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/E...llared-Dove/id
A woodpecker was pounding on a tree.
A snow plow came by and I could hear people scraping ice off their cars. A school bus drove by:
Mostly I was fiddling with my scarf. Although I did touch the snow a couple of times.
The air here smells clean. Oftentimes I would pass some pine trees that would make me feel like I was walking through a forest. A grandfather drove past in a truck and his cologne lingered in the air.
Someone had a fire going in their fireplace, using a duraflame.
I came home and picked out a tea I thought was appropriate for a winter walk- Orange Spice Tea.
(DH and I might have a bit of a tea problem, this isn't even half of our collection)
So this week, I challenge you- take us on a walk. What does it look like? Smell like? Sound like? Feel like? And taste like? Encourage us to take our own walking journeys!
