Why just walk if I can run?
Why just run if I can jump?
Why just jump if I can leap?
Why just leap if I can dance?
Why “just do” anything?
Why not just do everything with
as much interest, attention and
as I possibly can?
This is not “just moving,” this is my Life –
my ‘one and only wild and precious life.’
And if can only walk,
I Will Walk.
I just can’t.
Note: the phrase ‘one wild and precious life’ came to me from “The Summer Day” by Mary Oliver
