Walking to Work

Friday, March 14, 2008

I walked to the church four times this week. I'd started to let myself go the first four weeks of my employment there, so walking to work is a finger in the fat dam.

But it's so much more. It's 25 minutes each way, nearly an hour every day to listen to great stuff. Like a couple of sermons preached by my friend (search the speakers for Joshua McPaul). And last week's This American Life. And the latest Cell Phone Junkie podcast. Seriously, it's been a great week just for the audio.

But I've been sticking my camera in my bag on the way out the door, so there's some things to see. Like this snail. He was waiting right outside my door yesterday morning.

And then there was this cat, who sat and watched me walk with hardly a thought.


And this dog that followed me half-way up the block.


And then, most odd, a pair of rabbits and a cat on someone's front lawn. The cat was astride one of the rabbits, gnawing playfully at its neck. The other rabbit hopped away, and the cat looked up at me and meowed.

To think you miss all the stuff when you drive.

Yeah, we have lots of these snails outside our front door. You actually have to watch out, or you'll step on them.

Too funny to see the cat and the rabbit! Not that I didn't believe you when you told me about it, but it is just so strange to see!
