A walk to remember..
I enjoy taking long walks. No, I don't mind having company, but walking alone is a pleasure in itself. Today, I went out to get dinner from a nearby darshini, and as the place is close-by, I chose to walk. As I walked, I thought 'bout the hibernation mode post I've put up earlier in the day, and thought I should have written "I'm very much alive. And kicking" instead of "I'm very much alive and kicking" in that post.. This is one of the reasons I like walking alone.. It gives you a chance to think 'bout things you otherwise wouldn't have tght 'bout.. Things which ppl wud generally label as 'trivial'. Even trivial things make a difference. To me. And then, I remembered the longest walk I've had without company.. It was a few months ago, had watched a movie with family in PVR,( I don't rem which movie), and I convinced my parents that I'd over-eaten and hence I needed to walk. They consented. It takes 45-50 mins to walk home from PVR, and thinking back, I really enjoyed that particular walk, I clearly remember that I wasn't thinking 'bout anything while walking, but merely observing my surroundings with keen interest-lives of those around me, the roads, the companies and colleges in tht area,etc. In short, trivial things. But I vividly remember the amount of energy that walk had given me..And by walking, I don't mean ambling. That kind of a walk is different, this is more like to boost up energies-something like a power walk.The energy was obviously contagious, and it lasted for 2-3 days, I think.Now that I've tght of it, I'm gonna make it a habit to have 'long walks' more frequently.. Short walks somehow don't have the same effect, I don't know why. I didn't know then, that that particular walk would be so significant to me, and I would remember it in such detail, and eventually blog 'bout it.. Such is life.
