Walking

Clear skies above you
and hard dirt below
Walking towards nothing
Your backpack in tow.

Peaceful in silence
Alone on the trail
No meetings to go to
No Facebook or email.

Away from the pressures
And troubles of days
Nothing but sunlight
Nothing in your way.

Walking is quiet,
It's where you want to be
There is so much to witness
and so much to see.

I know what you mean. I'm surrounded by all these different technologies and times always seems to run out on me. But when i go hiking with my family and forget my phone at home (happens a lot), I feel so peacefull and I just don't want it to end.

Thanks! I don't have a phone or anything, which makes it easier on me, but just going outside even is great.

I don't know if I could live without some type of communication with my bff's, but I do agree that our technology has gotten way out of hand and we are becoming dependent on it. I mean, my neighbors drive to their mailbox instead of walking the ten feet!

Yeah. If this keeps up, we may lose the ability to walk! Feet will be used for working the gas pedal only!
