Please watch where you step.
My simple request.
Why look so far ahead, and miss what's right here?
It was around this time that we passed another couple, who were power walking through the trails, heads up and eyes forward.
It seemed they had a goal in mind; get to the end of the trail.
But the beauty is in the journey there, the experiences along the way, so much more often than it is in reaching the destination.
My love and I set a goal of our own that day: let's never become "that" couple.
It reminds me of the time a friend and I went to a state park for some catching up. She and I both took lots of pictures of mushrooms and tiny creatures.
There were teams of cross country runners there for practice, stampeding through the trails looking miserable and exhausted.
We felt like we were in their way.
Yes, exercise is important.
But you should have seen the flattened bodies of caterpillars and snails they left behind.
I'm sure they didn't give it much thought.
I hope that perhaps a few of them did.
