We can’t always travel the globe when we like. I don’t have the money for one, and secondly I have no time. Personally I love to hike. I don’t have much time for hiking either. So I try to grab little moments of joy when I can. Like the field behind the hospital where I work.
Besides the verdant green fields next to the dirt farm road there is a low drainage canal full of trees and rabbits. There is also the San Joaquin County Jail on the far side of the field to keep me company as I walk. Under the trees there is a lush growth of miner’s lettuce.
There is also an abandoned bridge here and paved roads that lead nowhere and are slowly disintegrating. It’s a really interesting place to walk. And peaceful. And many days, that’s just what I need.
