11-19-13 A Birthday Stroll- Palisades Interstate Park – Alpine NJ

And your mind is reeling as the sky is changing
All you’re feeling and you’re re-arranging
The rest of your life like lines on an old sailors chart
Fred Eaglesmith / Mary Gauthier

And the Hudson, it holds the life
we thought we did it on our own
I thought I had no sense of place or past
time was too slow, but then too fast
the river takes us home at last

Dar Williams

Took a long walk today through Palisades Interstate Park, the Alpine, New Jersey section, to contemplate my birthday…

Okay, that’s enough of that.

What did become clear is that I have not been getting down to the river nearly enough and that, at least, will be changing.  Revamped website is almost done. Rethought book is closing in to lay out.  It is past time for me to stake these things down and move on to the next cycle.

Meanwhile, take a little hike with me but watch out for the Park Rangers trucks!

3-29-12 A Walk To The Falls

Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

As a reminder on May 12th, Todd starts his 8 day Hudson Run. You can read about it at the link.

5-28-11 Summer Day Walk 14th – Battery Park City

It is amazing how quickly you can get out of shape.  I have only being working FT for 2 weeks and a walk that would have been a “walk in the park” left me with sore legs.
