There is an art to wandering

Sometimes I have a heartfelt joy to wander aimlessly.
I didn’t plan this walk. A walk among hawthorns and deers towards the coast of Øresund.
All my worries are left  and the only thing that counts is the present moment.
Our brain needs a break so our spirit can live.

There is an art to wandering. If I have a destination, a plan – an objective – I’ve lost the ability to find serendipity. I’ve become too focused, too single-minded. I am on a quest, not a ramble. I search for the Holy Grail of particularity, and miss the chalice freely offered, filled full to overflowing.

  1. Lovely photos Hanna – and the sometimes the best way to see things is to wander aimlessly – we call in ‘bimbling’ over here 🙂

  2. Yes indeed! We are off tomorrow to a particular area but when there, we won’t have a plan. Take it as it comes! There will be sea and shore, some distant mountains, trees and…………….peace of mind.
