My walk takes about 20 minutes and it's at a very brisk pace. It's my thinking time - my getting organised and planning time. Although sometimes I stray down to the beach (it has to be warm - and no wind- before I spend too much time by the sea), I usually just walk the streets of our neighbourhood.
One of my favourite quotes is from Marcel Proust:
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
The local park is for keyholders only - and I don't have a key.
But using my 'new eyes' if I imagine the railings away - it becomes a whole new world.
I could be in the countryside rather than the suburbs of Liverpool. No one else is around - apart from the boy delivering newspapers and the occasional dog walker. I even make new friends...
So peaceful and relaxing - I just wish it would warm up a bit!
