Starting next week, and every Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. during the spring through fall,(weather permitting), I am going to be doing a Hike n Heal in the Just out my front door series in the loveliest place in Madison,WI. The UW Madison Arboretum. ( http://uwarboretum.org ) Just as the Magnolia and the Lilac trees start to bloom the perfume of these flowering trees envelopes your soul. The absolutely best walks have been in the Arboretum for me. My sister Sara and I would go after dinner for a leisurely walk and we would talk about life, love and spirituality. Sara would sometimes hug a tree, and I would laugh, photograph and post to Facebook. Decker and I shared many a walks through the magical woods, and the edges of the tree lined belittling. He spotted where an Owl would often perch at night, a white coating covering the bushes told him. The lil flowers that are everywhere, the smells of grass, blue birds, hawks, trees and many other wild life, it just makes my day. I become quite addicted to the pleasures of the outdoors. I spent many a day outside as a child, and now the once lost spirit of that young girl is back. I love, love, love this place so near my front door. So, I invite you to join me. We will walk, talk and do a meditation somewhere in between.
If you’d like to join me, please feel free to text me ” I am coming just out my front door” …at 608-217-7689… we will meet in front of the visitors center. It’s the entrance that is off of Seminole Hwy. If you can’t join us that time on that day, I am found there often enough, I encourage you to text me if you want to take a walk. I love this place and anytime, if I can, I’ll join you too in a walk.
