Are you thinking of starting a walking routine or looking for a podcast to walk to? Years ago, I started a program of almost daily morning walks. These walks are time for me to contemplate life, and think about topics such as simplicity, simple living, minimalism, history, philosophy (especially Stoicism), living in a small village, self reliance, good books, habits, hobbies, projects, family life, and essentially being a man, husband and father. There have been times when I would go months without missing a daily walk, but typically I get in about 4-5 walks a week. While walking is great exercise, my walking habit is more focused on my mental wellbeing than my physical wellbeing. This podcast is my attempt to develop a habit of recording some of my thoughts and reflections as they manifest on my walk. I don’t think I’ll record every walk, but we’ll see. It's my hope building this habit helps me gain more clarity and perspective on my life as I share what's on my mind with you, my anonymous virtual friend and walking partner. Just a note, these are "field recordings" as I walk around my village of East Aurora and in Buffalo NY...so expect the audio to be a little rough around the edges quality-wise.
