In Burke, there are these wonderful trails, throughout all the neighborhoods! I don’t stray far from home, but today me and Chazz got lost. I couldn’t even recall the last place I recognized but before I knew it, we were on a gravel path. We were walking, while I listened to the music of Fun. coming from my earphones when I get a call from my husband. “We’re exploring, I don’t really have any idea where we are right now…” Not too concerned, we get to a street, then leading to a busy main cut through road that a lot of cars whiz by. Not going that way. Now, I’m not technically lost, I know where we are, just not how to navigate the paths too totally well. We come upon a couple walking their dog and we [Chazz and I] find out the way. I turn off my music, annoying in the background (and I’m still having a hard time with figuring out the phone) and admire the GORGEOUS day! Just listen to the birds singing and the other wonderful sounds of nature. So soothing, a state of tranquility washes over.
Walking along, and walking, and walking… just walking along, singing a song side by side… [song from 1930s]
Going going going, so far, but at least I know I’m going in the right direction. Maybe a metaphor for my life…
So we’re walking for so long, I suddenly see train tracks on my right, wow I didn’t know we had gone that far! I know exactly where we are, we’ve come this way many times on family walks with Matt and Chazz.
But then we get to a fork in the road, and I’m positive we go straight ahead, but Chazz pulls me the other way. Ok, fine, I’ll give him a little bit…But then I realize where we are, and we’re on our way home!! Chazz knows the way better than I do!
I don’t really know where I’m going right now, but I’m enjoying it. And luckily, I have Chazz by me to tell me which path to take when I turn the wrong direction!
