Visiting an old friend

New Jersey tower, George Washington Bridge, Sept. 25, 2006

It was early May when I last walked across the George Washington Bridge, gateway to so many of my adventures on foot in Manhattan and beyond.
With cooler weather approaching, I want to dust off my walking shoes and get back on the path.
On the path, I lose myself and find myself at the same time.
On the path, necessities and luxuries rarely vie.
On the path, my senses sharpen.
On the path, I feel content as my life unfolds at three miles per hour.
I'm just about ready to heed the call once again.

Oh yes, oh yes, to all that. Time for me to get walking again too. Terrific photo - is this with the new camera?

Hello Jean,

Thanks for the compliment. Yes, I took this photo with my new camera. I'm really surprised by how versatile this camera is.

I've never crossed any of the "big" bridges on foot - and not many of the little ones, either. Heck, these days I hardly find enough time for simply getting around anywhere on foot... I envy you that!

Yes, I'm very grateful for my schedule and what it allows me to do.
