SPH: We're Walking On Sunshine

Clockwise from upper left: A walk around Mt. Trashmore,
March of the Canada Geese,
Lady Liberty takes a stroll,
College sweethearts walk hand in hand.

"Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake."
~ Wallace Stevens

Walking under the bridge to a magical land, Prospect Park, Brooklyn,
Remembering Max and his walks around the block,
Keeping step with time in Colonial Williamsburg,
Walking on water, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

"There is nothing like walking to get the feel of a country. A fine landscape is like a piece of music; it must be taken at the right tempo. Even a bicycle goes too fast." ~ Paul Scott Mowrer, The House of Europe

Graduation 2008, The College of William and Mary.
Flip-flops and high heels... these feet were made for walking.
Traditional walk from the Wren Building to the ceremony.
Parents walk along... proud and relieved!

"The sum of the whole is this: walk and be happy; walk and be healthy. The best way to lengthen out our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose." ~ Charles Dickens

The theme this week gave me a chance to revisit some of my favorite places and times. Of course, I am partial to the William and Mary pictures, especially the feet. Nyssa wore flip-flops; I can't imagine walking over the brick sidewalks, down through the dell and up the hill in those high heeled shoes....

Actually, with my knees these days, walking all the way across campus in sneakers isn't the easiest thing to do..... but

"He who limps is still walking." ~ Stanislaw J. Lec
