It's a Slow Walk in the Park...

This is about a walk in the park, and a slow walk at that.   Rose Park is the best place for a lazy stroll in town.  I would say stop and smell the roses but there aren't any roses, go figure!

I used to walk and listen to inspirational tapes when I walked.  Now I just walk.  One could say I'm an inspirational tape dropout.  Oh, Well!  You can only listen to Jim Rohn's "The Art of Exceptional Living" so many times before you give it a rest.   

I have finally figured out it is EXCEPTIONAL simply to be alive.  Three things I learned from Jim Rohn's tapes is to take photos of life events, build a library, and keep a journal.  I think blogging helps with the journaling part.

As I walk, the birds inspire me now with their chirping and the squirrels can amuse one with their scurrying hither and yon and running up and down their holes.

On a recent walk after the October rains, a gentlemen said his knee was bothering him, and I said it was probably the rain.  He thought I said "BRAIN"   Now, everytime I see him, he points to his brain, saying it's getting better!

That's as good as it gets WHEN your brain gets better!   here's a shot of the trail at Rose Park:

Rose Park is next to Safety City, a child size town for teaching traffic and bicycle safety.

There's a black cat that doesn't care about fences and roams freely at Safety City.  I keep meaning to get a photo of the black cat on the Safety City trail.  

I just noticed that the Abilene Association of Realtors has a building at Safety City.

 

Here's a photo of the Association building right next to McDonalds:

It's been a slow walk in the park, and heard the birds sing, the squirrels scamper and the black cat prowl.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Enjoy your walk.

Awesome pictures.  Walking is great on it's own, even without the tapes. :)
