I’ve walked thousands of steps on this lane. I walk back and forth. Back and forth.
I walk in the evening as the day is going to sleep outside. The birds are roosting. My chickens are getting their last feed in before they head into the coop for the night. Lately its been the first time I’ve been out in the day.
Sometimes I walk with Kevin and we talk or sometimes my dog Rudy tags along. Sometimes I walk alone and listen to the noises around me. The cars, the snort of a horse , a bark of a dog , the din of the cicadas. Sometimes I listen to music. Classic rock to take me back to my younger days. Praise music to help my spirit.
But then there’s the lane and the two twin fawns and their momma. They stare at me and I smile and I try to take their picture with my phone and my heart jumps with excitement as the babies trot away just a bit leery of me. But we had a moment – it’s a heart buzz for sure.
And out I’ll go again Maybe I’ll even dance.
