Walkabouts of our property have become an item in our weekly plan.
Yes. We actually have to book the time. In our agendas.
Because it would seem that all too often family walks are the first to be pushed aside when the lawn needs cutting or the tomatoes need processing or sleepovers happen.
There is no question that there is much to gain from time spent roaming around outdoors with no agenda. Moments spent in conversation as well as in contemplation help to work through issues that we shoulder.
It is freedom.
