Condition your body to get up every day and go for a walk.
Before I walked on the Camino I learned to make walking my state of being, something I integrated into my life, not an exercise or a chore that had to be done.
We have to drive when we go hiking, I don’t have to use my car for my daily walk.
Even though I live in a car crazy Los Angeles, it’s very easy for me to take a walk that leaves me feeling as though I’ve been on a meditation retreat by simply stepping out my front door, turning left and walking for about four miles.
Can you do that in your city?
Put on your walking shoes and come join me…
Bougainvilleas bloom year-round…
The trees are still full of citrus fruit – lemons, oranges, grapefruit, mandarins. Yesterday I picked grapefruits off the tree in my friend Helen’s garden that are enormous, each one the size of a melon.
walk my neighborhood
blossoms bulbs citrus greet me
spring kisses my heart
A few of my favorite gardens…
and the trees
As this is Hollywood, there are always interesting cars like this one parked outside the houses
