about

walking is such an important part of my life. i once heard a very knowledgeable woman talk about walking meditation. i was so happy to hear someone who seemed 'spiritual' give credibility to my walks. to quote from a song by my friend sue, "you know i never learned to meditate..." at least not in the way i understood it, as in emptying the mind. i heard another wise old woman say that if you can empty the mind for twelve seconds, you can reach enlightenment. i think about two seconds is the best i've ever been able to do.

lyrics

i imagine a perfect world at least it's perfect to me
sometimes i feel so down i wish everyone could see
i imagine a perfect world
a world where everyone is free to take a walk on a
beautiful day like we are
i was born into a world where nothing is real
i grew up in a world where it could be dangerous to feel
but i just can't help it i love you all too much
sometimes it does get lonely
when i feel i'm losing my sense of touch
i imagine a perfect world at least it's perfect to me
sometimes i feel so down i wish everyone could see
i imagine a perfect world
a world where everyone is free to take a walk on a
beautiful day like we are
all the past is catching up the future is filled with tears
it seems that we've been astray from our nature for
far too many years
if it's truly over i can't wait to start again i know
we can do better
and so until then i imagine a perfect world
i imagine a perfect world at least it's perfect to me
sometimes i feel so down i wish everyone could see
i imagine a perfect world
a world where everyone is free to take a walk on a
beautiful day like we are
like we are
i imagine a perfect world
