Garrison “Well, it’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown (applause)..” Keillor said that taking a walk is one of the best things you can do when you’re feeling down, confused, or unsettled. We’re dealing with quite a bit as a family right now, of which some readers of this blog are already aware. I won’t say much, yet, since I think it needs the dignity of staying “unspoken”, if you’ll pardon the language of the Christian subculture. It’s nothing bad, well, I mean, nothing bad like a bad moral decision or anything — just the natural progression of life.
So, I’ll now take a walk to mark the end of a rather long last two weeks. The journey is not complete, but I think ol’ Gary is right: walking is good for the soul. I wonder if its because God can finally get his hands around us, if we let Him, to give us a cosmic hug and whisper that it’s all going to be OK, because the same one who holds me also holds eternity.
