Day 17: WORLD PREMATURITY DAY.
In the United States, around 12% of babies (that's nearly 500,000) born each year are premature. That means 12% of the most amazing, tough as nails, miracles of life, are born each year. Most people can live their whole life without having to be that brave or that courageous, but these tiny babies don't really have a choice. Sometimes being strong is the only option you have. SPREAD THE WORD, RAISE AWARENESS FOR PREMATURITY. Let babies live out their lives being brave and courageous, not have to start that way. 💜

So many trees and limbs down. You see broken branches stuck up high in trees. Be careful out there. #uppereastside #snowvember Nothing compared to the ongoing devastation in California. #nyc #whyiwalk #nycphotographer #nycphotography @ourtown @nbcnewyork #nbc4ny

Remembering my time in beautiful #Galway where the streets in the #oldtown look like a movie set and there was music and laughter everywhere

Federico Garcia Lorca wrote, “The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish.”
This dichotomy is never more apparent, although you would never know it, unless you were in another kind of in-the-know, than at Canal and Lafayette in Lower Manhattan. This amazing mural of Garcia Lorca by Raúl Ruiz and Cern is almost exactly across the street from the penthouse showroom of the cosmetics company Glossier.

Yesterday on my walk, as the snow fell heavy all around me, I had a moment of feeling total peace. Bummer that was short lived. I guess that’s why you can catch me walking in the dark with a headlight, and a reflective vest, in a snowstorm, alone. #winter #snow #beauty #sunshine #peaceful #taketimeforyourself #getoutside #nottoocoldtogetoutside #country #countrylife #countryliving #christmascard #theredoneforanotheryear #whoikiddingidontdochristmascards #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhitephoto #mylife #whyiwalk #clearmyhead #fitbitmotivation #is20000stepgoalunrealistic?

‘The truth is, I like the small moments. I believe there is beauty to be found in the everyday…When you slow down every moment becomes a story’ @annabrones

I have a little recommended read for you this afternoon! 📚Go ahead and put the kettle on ☕️ Its time to press pause ⏸ on that busy day you’re having (go on, just for a few minutes, it’ll be worth it) and spend some time celebrating how important it is to slow down from time to time.

I think you’ll really like this. It’s such a celebration of the small, quiet, simple moments. Of slowing down and appreciating the simple joys that are right there in front of us if we’re present enough to notice.

So head to @she_explores Click the bio link to ‘Memories’ by Anna Brones. Pour yourself a cup of tea. Settle in for a few special minutes enjoying this beautiful blog post.

Why Walk Reason 1:
::
It facilities profound integration of the inner and outer journey. I move through natural and communal landscapes with my feet while also reaching sacred places in my heart, soul, dreams, and intuition.

Last year I walked the Snowdonia Way in Wales. I took a day off from walking in the town of Trawsfynydd, kindly translated by a local I met on the way as ‘over the mountain.’ One of the best things about walking long distances is the way the land and its history introduce themselves, slowly and deeply. In the hostel at Trawsfynydd, I met another american traveller who had come to visit the home of the poet Hedd Wyn, Ellis Evans, who won the the National Eisteddfod Bard’s Chair in 1917, six weeks after dying on a battlefield in Belgium. I joined him the next day on a visit to Yr Ysgwrn, the bard’s home, where we were the only two visitors who needed the tour translated from Welsh. Today, his poetry has been on my mind (not only because of the copious harp imagery), along with all the poetry not written by him and countless others. Here are some of his words and some tourist’s photos from my visit to his home:

Woe that I live at this fell time,
When God has ebbed so far away,
And man into his place did climb,
Both king and churl to demand sway.

When he felt God no longer near,
He raised the killing sword aloft:
The sound of battle fills the ear,
Its shadows on the poor man’s croft.

The ancient harps which once were played
Now hang on willows over there,
And in the rain boys’ blood is made
To flow; their screaming fills the air.
