A Late-Night Walk: Try It!

It’s been too long since I’ve had a long walk. Between being out of town and midday heat, I’ve missed the chance.

Last night after 1 am I went out and got 25 minutes in. I LOVE the tree frogs and crickets this time of year. Evening is so peaceful in my usually busy neighborhood… I saw 2 vehicles go by the whole time.

No, I’m not afraid of a bogy man. I’m in a lot more danger when there are more cars driving 2 feet from me. I know which houses are awake at this hour, and have greeted folks in most of those homes over the years I’ve been walking (both daytime and evenings).

I refuse to stay home and be afraid. I went to Africa for 38 days and came home safe. I have traveled over 200,000 miles in my previous car, solo, to large cities, and came home safe. My father died in our kitchen.

Nothing is certain, but staying home afraid is no way to live. You can die at home, trying to be safe (or not). Case closed.

And yes, it was a wonderful, refreshing walk. Thanks for asking.

    I too love walking at night. I am a morning person and I usually am out the door at 4:30 for my 4 mile walk. You are right, it is much safer with less cars. I love looking at the stars when it is not cloudy and listening to nature before I start my busy day.
