Just back from a (almost) 3-mile walk. Sure feels good. Getting fit on this day before my birthday. Had a fleeting, mystical sense of oneness as I walked: how small each of us is, but what a wonder to be even a small part of this ball of dirt that is our planet. Each of us belongs to the oceans, the air, the vegetation. The oxygen I breathe today was in the leaves yesterday. The rain that we're expecting by Friday was in the Pacific Monday. I want to grow more mindful of that and honor all of creation.
