Northern Walk - Ninth Week


This weekend the Walkers are tarrying in the Greater Metropolitan Cleveland, Oh. Area after a fast-feeling week of walking. They welcomed the presence of "Transient" Will from found-to-be-seasonal Niles, Mi. who walked three days with the Day shift. His presence and experience on Crossroads were welcome, and the Walk is better for having had him even for a few days.

It presently dawns on one and all that the Walkers are in the autumn of their year, so to speak. Nine weeks have passed and only three remain; while there is time enough to reach Washington D.C. on foot, there is also time enough to lose focus and orientation as the Walkers come closer to their goal. That said, continually high spirits, a Friday evening youth group gathering and an event-filled rally at the abortion clinics in Cleveland this Saturday morning ought to serve the Walkers well in the coming days and weeks.

As newlywed-"Transient" Erin told the Northern Walkers with her parting words after a two-week stint with the Northern Walk, "It's not how many miles you walk, it's how you walk the miles."

Pax,
Andrew
Sunburned and Recharging Leader, Northern Walk
