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.

Time is fleeting …

Summer, which took so long to finally arrive, suddenly seems like it is zipping by.  Just like sand sifting through your toes at the beach, or funneling through an hourglass, it seems that after Independence Day has passed, the realization … Continue reading

Missed steps and a misstep?

It was a beautiful and coolish morning, perfect for a walk, but my trek had to be cut short by an errand.  That errand was a trip to the eye doctor to pick up my glasses that had arrived almost … Continue reading

Oh … those lucky ducks.

Today was an escape to beautiful and historic Heritage Park, a venue which never disappoints.  I figured I’d trek around the track twice, after visiting the old village area to feed the ducks and take photos before it got busy. … Continue reading
