February 13th – My Path is Peace

When I retired, I started to walk – a lot. I started walking in an effort to improve my health, but I found other benefits. One of the best of these benefits was that I found it particularly calming. As I walked my favourite path in Patricia Park, I thought of it as my path to peace. After months and miles of walking, I was at a place where I felt that wherever I was, peace was my path.


  • Update 2022
  • I have found the path of peace quite easy and pleasant and have managed to generally stay my course.
  • I have drifted over to and even straddled the paths of love, happiness, hope and faith. That was nice.
  • I have occasionally zigged left, when I should have zagged right and have found myself on the paths of fear, resentment, anger, or the like. They were unpleasant, so I returned to my path of peace.
  • I have been drawn to a sparkly path, alit with party lights, and decorated with balloons and streamers. I soon realized that this festive path was a meandering pity party filled with blame games and that it would take me nowhere. I returned to the path of peace.
  • I have stumbled on the horrific paths of hate and righteousness. I did not last long on those paths. They were too exhausting!
  • I have learned that life is filled with paths, some hard, some easy, some better, some worse. You have to pick your paths carefully and you have stay alert – because as simple as it is to get sidetracked, getting back on track is seldom as easy as it seemed it would be.
My path of peace 🕊️
That’s an ugly one 😳
That one could lead to something sketchy 🥴
Dead end ☃️
Confidentially walking the straight and narrow 🙂

That’s it for today. Take care and have a great day!
