Yule log …


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!

About lindasschaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, and this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for over three decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, although I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too.

    Marge – when I sent you my original post last February I had no idea I could sustain it that long and have so much to say. If the weather improves after this Christmas Eve/Christmas snow happens, I will try a few more miles then rest on my laurels ’til 2015. Thank you for your encouragement since Day 1.
