Today was a beautiful day to trust, a beautiful day to start my 100 miles — again.

I made a Walking playlist for my iPod.  The first song , quite appropriately, is Willie Nelson’s On the Road Again.  There I was, sunning beating on my face, a breeze blowing through my hair, walking down the street, grinning from ear to ear, realizing how happy I was to be back on the road walking again.

Patsy Cline’s Walking After Midnight came next.  Velvety voice crooning me down the block.

“Are ya ready boots?  Well, start walkin’.”  I started feeling fatigued, but These Boots Were Made For Walking had the best beat of all.  I felt like I was gliding down the sidewalk.

“I want to give love, I want to share, I want to show you just how much I care.”  Seeing that in print looks a little schmaltzy, but when Toni Childs belts it out in I Want to Walk With You, it feels anything but.  It was about this time that I was dedicating my walk to all the people in developing countries who cannot walk.

“In this world we’ve a soul for a compass and a heart for a pair of wings….. why walk when you can fly?”  Yea, well, I would have loved to been flying right about then. I was at the end of my mile and feeling it.  But the music transcended me beyond my physical discomfort reminding me that what I am doing, my 100 mile walk, is about following my soul’s compass and doing what I need to do for those who can’t do it for themselves.

How can you walk with me?  I have a Donate Here button on the left.  If you’re so inclined, no amount is too small.  And I also need help spreading the word.  If you’re comfortable sharing this blog, my story with other people, that will help immensely.

One down….. Ninety Nine to go.
