Autumn walking.

I started this blog some years ago when I was learning to walk long distances.  Seven years later, I walk shorter distances but find each walk to be more than exercise.  Usually, I walk at Green Lake, and  I use my eyes as much as my legs.  I take great pleasure in the act of walking, to use the time to re-balance, or to perform what I have called elsewhere "cleaning out the gunk."

With my eyes and my camera, I look for what Carolyn Scott Kortge, author of one of my favorite books, "The Spirited Walker" (Harper, 1998) calls "the fields of light," and what Bono calls "...a light we cannot always see."

And yes, puddles still tempt me!
