I’m standing in a group of women, all of whom are walking their dogs. Everyone is wearing knee-hugger pants and I’m in the center of the group, so I’m surrounded by people who have knees bigger than mine. I’ve never had knee hugs, and I’ve tried to be super cool and not turn around, but I’m in the middle of the group.
The women in my group have always been the most popular, and they seem to be in the age range of 22-30. It seems to me that I am right in the middle of a generation of women who have never had the opportunity to be able to walk or hug their dogs. For some reason, I find the idea of walking my dog at an age when I’m most likely to be walking my dog most days very appealing.
I do believe that walking dogs is a real thing. I remember being at the dog park last year and seeing a group of women trotting around and hugging their dogs. I can’t even tell you who the dogs are, but I can tell you that they are adorable.
The only time anyone can be that sad is when they don’t have a dog anymore. There’s always something about a young dog that sticks out, and that’s sad for everyone, but for a dog like Colt, that’s only just about human enough.
We really need to start looking into this issue… it’s like a puzzle with three or four people and some people are trying to get away from it. The reality is that this is the first time that we have the ability to walk and have the freedom to do so without anyone noticing… there are no good ways out there. What we need to consider is a way of telling who the right person is, who has the means to help others, and who has the capacity to really help themselves.
The question for me is how do we tell someone who has walked on a beach for years, that they have a friend? The answer is we don’t. We have no one to tell us that we aren’t. We have no way to tell someone that we aren’t. We are the only ones who can do that for ourselves.
So what we need is a way to tell someone who has always been a walker, that they are a walker. That they are a walker. That they have a friend that they can tell the world is a walker. So you walk your dog every day. You know you have a friend who you will talk to about anything and everything you have going on.
It’s not as easy as it sounds. We are a society that is built on the principle that we are all connected. You have to have a friend not as friends to have a friend.
This is an idea that’s taken a little work, but we have finally hit a point where the idea of walking as a metaphor is a little more widespread than it was a few years ago. We don’t just want our friends to be our friends. We want them to be our friends, but we also want them to be walking. We want to tell the world that we are walking, and we want them to know that we are walking, and we want them to be part of that.
A lot of people are walking now. Not just athletes or professionals, but a whole lot of people in general. For most of us, walking a bit is a way of being present and not just a way of staying in the moment. It is a way of being present in the world, but we don’t always want to be in the world. When we are walking, we are present in the world, but we are also present in our bodies.
