Marching

December 26, 2010

Hiking has emerged as the dominant activity this Winter. Luke and I get out at least once a week and I actually feel a difference in the way I move through the landscape. I am in hiking shape. Which basically means I don’t slow on the hills. Santa Cruz offers so many easy and swift opportunities to get out in nature. Every morning my Dad, Bonnie, me and Bello pile into the little white truck and drive 3 minutes to their neighborhood trailhead. 3 minutes! Once there we do one forward fold to loosen up, strap on the totally nerdy but fun walking sticks and speed up the mountain. On my birthday I want to spend the bulk of the day outside where I can look down at my marching feet and sort out my past or look up to the sky, to the birds, to the towering California Bay Laurels and dream of my future.
