I was wondering on the occasion of logging my 500th post, that however could I have so much to talk about? I guess it is because of people like you who stop by to read what I have to say. Sometimes I amaze myself that I have not run out of topics yet, though the occasion of the first day of Winter which will happen at 6:03 p.m. EST, and the snowy and cold days on the way, may render the walks more infrequent and perhaps the posts as well.
While walking here, there and everywhere, it seems there is an endless supply of comments to state, ideas to share, and reflections and recollections to be made. I have a document on my computer chockfull of items noted and worth expounding on some day. With the exception of a few short posts that were merely holiday greetings and salutations, I’ve amassed all these posts just since February 2013. It’s quite a log if I say so myself, especially as I scroll down through the prior entries – it overwhelms me sometimes.
As of today, I’ve walked 540 miles this year and would like to strive for more if the weather cooperates. I’ve only driven 260 miles in 2014. Every day I am thankful I began this walking and writing regimen.
With the sunset tonight and the Winter Solstice, which celebrates the sun’s rebirth and the beginning of Winter, we can rejoice in the cold-weather states that the days will start getting longer once again, and, hopefully Winter will not be brutal like 2013-2014 and won’t languish long into Spring.
So on this shortest day of the year, maybe it is also the shortest post of the year!
