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.

Tiny Treasures.

We’re about to embark on Autumn and I’m happy to do so, since I’ve grown weary of Mother Nature’s continuous tweaks of this Summer season, not to mention all her weather boo-boos for 2019 if you want to be picky.  … Continue reading

How about a little Zen?

In a four-season state, unless you are a Winter sports enthusiast, are fearless of driving in the ice and snow, or think that frigid air is invigorating, the advent of Winter is not a welcome thought.  In my mind, there … Continue reading

Roaming along the River.

Today’s destination was Belanger Park in River Rouge, which runs along the Detroit River.  It was the first time for me visiting this venue, although I’ve meandered along the Detroit River boardwalks at Elizabeth Park, Bishop Park and Dingell Park … Continue reading

The wasps are giddy!

After Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer, it seems we just morph into the harvest and Halloween season and go with the flow.  Mums have replaced weather-beaten petunias in porch pots and I’ve already seen the first Halloween décor … Continue reading

Sojourn in the sticks.

I’m feeling a little weary this morning.  Over the weekend I walked almost 15 miles, drove about 80 miles and stayed up late to describe my adventures in two very long blog posts.  It is raining  right now, so here … Continue reading

1906 – it was a very good year.

After yesterday’s trek with a country twist, today’s offering promises something out of the ordinary.  For me anyway.  Not a hint of nature, unless you want to count some shots of the Detroit River.  I didn’t even see a seagull … Continue reading
