I’ve noticed myself being very careful walking the last few days as snow and ice have descended upon Chapel Hill. I wish I was this mindful every day, walking to my car, driving. Mindful walking, or walking as if you have already arrived, is a gift. How often do you pause and notice the pavement and our surroundings with such acute awareness? Safety concerns draws our moment to moment attention and, fortunately, garners our awareness outside ourselves. Nature calls us to notice; to put aside the stream of endless thoughts and worries in our mind. We focus because we have to. Wouldn’t it be nice to focus because we want to!?
