Some Thoughts on Stoicism and Walking
I didn’t know you were Canadian. This is a great story about walking and thinking, but also about Thomas. I found it interesting too, that he had the same name as Tommy Douglas, our father of universal healthcare, who is always voted, The Greatest Canadian. He sounds like he was an extraordinary man, also.
Walking 🚶♂️ the very best friend to those of us Senior Citizens. For me the first walk of the day with our very best friend Hubert the Dog 🐕 begins around 7:00 am for 2 to 3 miles. Sally takes him for his afternoon walk for another 2 to 3 miles. Oh yes, one of my first real hero’s was Coach John Wooden of UCLA basketball history. I crossed paths with him on a number of occasions as he did his daily 5 miles. Coach lived to 99. 🙏🏻
To take long walks, a nice resolution for this post-vacation period.
I so enjoyed reading this piece. So much inspiration is packed into it. It's also a beautiful tribute to your dear friend <3
Love it …
I must confess, having followed you for a while, you have always motivated me to read more.
