Early Morning Walk

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.

-Henry David Thoreau

The first snow has fallen in the mountains that I can see from my balcony and town. It leant new beauty to my morning walk/run which, as Thoreau suggests, is a blessing for the whole day. 
The rest of his words are inspirational too and seemed just right for this day.


  1. Perfect! Just the blue sky and the white mountains are gorgeous enough, but then the countryside, too... lovely. :-)

  2. Oh, you live in such a beautiful place!

  3. DJan, "Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads." And it's days like this that this seems so true. I'm sure you've had similar experiences hiking.

    Patti, I feel blessed.

    Nan, I do. Come and see for yourself!

  4. A fresh sheet of lace, and everything is changed. I was thinking about how we create heaven all day yesterday! And here you are, echoing Thoreau, and I was echoing you.

  5. Ruth, We are the creators of our heaven- what a good thing to echo.

  6. Perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  7. just now i needed these words, Live the life you have imagined. i'll run with my pockets full of them tomorrow straight toward just that kind of life. thank you. (and thank you, too, for all of your kind support.)


  8. erin, Yes, you're good with the imagining. The support is my pleasure and well deserved.
