REBECCA MOONEY This year my focus is on my passion (some may say my addiction) for walking. I will write a creative walking journal for 100 days. This has been partly inspired by The Artist's Way, a book about creativity which I read some years ago and followed the advice about writing a journal. I stopped writing 3 years ago, which is far too long to go without putting thoughts on paper. I doubt everything written in my journal will be published on this website. I'll add a random photo of a trusted companion; my shadow.


Day 21

It's one task writing in my journal, as I'm still a pen and paper girl at heart, it's another thing transferring my journal thoughts to the 100 days site. I admit I cut a lot of the personal jibberish out. Yes, today I had a gorgeous 6km walk through the Botanical Gardens alone so I can up the pace to my natural level where the rhythm seems to be in tune with my thoughts. Runners must experience this, but I'm a walker. If there's any belief in Western and Chinese astrology, I'm an Earth sign (Virgo), born in an Earth Year and a Chinese Earth animal (Dog) born in a Chinese Earth Year. You can't get more grounded than that. Maybe that's why I've never been able to run. When I try to run it feels like some invisible stretchy glue isn't letting me part from my sacred earth connection. Whatever, I'm just a very grounded person who loves to walk.
