Walking

I find myself thinking so many thoughts while out walking with Zack. The moment we step out of the front door, my mind's observing so many things.

"I can't believe our neighbor still hasn't dragged his trash bin inside his garage. Why the heck is it still by the curb?"

"I wonder how they know which plants to buy and plant in front of their place?"

"Ugh! There's that weird neighbor again!"

"Oh, look! A red bird up in the tree! I wonder what it's called."

I do find it very necessary to drag my mind back into simply enjoying the walk. It's amazing how the mind just goes off like that, even when you're attempting to relax and enjoy the moment. It takes serious effort to focus on the walk and how fun it is in its simplicity.
