Are you homeward bound or playing host or hostess?


The hours and minutes are ticking away and soon Thanksgiving will be here.

Throughout the year I document my never-ending journey to reach my eventual year-end walking goal by cranking out tales from my daily encounters, but, all those steps in my daily meanderings will never equal the miles that many will expend by planes, trains or automobiles to be with their loved ones on Thanksgiving. Whether you are homeward bound for this holiday, or the longest journey you  take is to the front door to greet family and friends, or simply trudging to the kitchen to prepare the feast, let that journey be safe and blessed and made with love.

I’ll leave you with this message:

“Let yourself be drawn by the strange pull of what you really love; it will not lead you astray.”  ~ Rumi

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

About Linda Schaub

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, so 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 four 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, though 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. - Linda Schaub

      Hi Ann Marie – Rumi is a 13th century Persian poet and theologian – I will send you a link about him … no rain most of the Summer and it seems that we are getting it all at one time. This morning rain, dismal looking and I guess rain in the cards every day through Monday (maybe Sunday is salvaged).
