solvitur ambulando


A lot has been going through my mind lately.  A heaviness of the inevitable, and the trickle of memories as I begin to open up to acceptance.  

As ever, walking has been my solace.  I came across the term solvitur ambulando a while back, which translates from Latin as "it is solved by walking."  I believe that if it is not necessarily solved, it is decidedly soothed.  I've committed to getting out of the house first thing in the morning to walk down the hill through the neighborhood as often as I can.  The rhythm of my steps and the fresh, cool morning air filling my lungs and clearing my head is meditative and, honestly, addictive.  My favorite kind of walks, though, are the rambling kind, through nature, without path or direction, as I did in the pictures above, along the banks of the Willamette River.  

I haven't much more to say this time but leave you with some things that caught my eye recently.

slow notes:  

That cool morning air is calling and I must go.  Until next time -
