A Different Point of View

I woke up this morning all excited about my walk...
This morning I decided to look for something different...
A different point of view from what I normally see...
I wanted to see things that I hadn’t seen before...

I used to walk once around the park...
With a friend, for around eighteen months...
Now I walk alone and it’s an opportunity to see so much more...
A new type of gift that I’m giving to myself...

This morning I saw Ned, walking his dog...
As usual, I saw Trip walking his two dogs...
And I saw other dads... actually doing yoga...
I saw the sun rising over Holy Name Church...
And I got to see the lagoon from many different angles...

It’s such a joy to see people smiling...
It’s such a joy to say “good morning” to everyone...
All people...
Black, White, Brown, Asian...

We’re all out here enjoying our world...
Together...
As the sun rises...
As the world awakens...
Together...

Just a different point of view...
Truly a gift...
