Odd Walking Thoughts

The boy sat on the banking looking for trout in the brook. The earth, mixed with growing ferns, smelled of something he didn’t know. He wanted the trout to come from the shaded area so he could watch them. “It’s not possible to live in another mind.” The boy said out loud, not knowing what his father had meant. The boy promised himself to never slam the door and leave. His mother replied to no one, “It’s when you care for someone more than yourself.”

  1. I don’t know how many times I’ve been out in the wild (as a child as well as an adult) when I’ve analyzed and remembered and relived tiny moments that changed me (if I let them). Working through problems. Questions, conundrums, worries. Letting pieces of the puzzle fall into place. Ah yes; your thoughts here speak volumes.
