Walkin'--enjoyments and benefits

The Many Benefits of Daily Walking

Today, my dear spouse and I finished our breakfast quickly, then went for a walk.  Normally we walk later in the day, but today we walked early in order to beat the rainfall, predicted to begin about 9:00 a.m.

Walking:   it's great for human beings and for other animals too.  Read a great article, “Walking,” in Wikipedia for details on the benefits of walking, including increasing one’s energy level, reducing stress and raising life expectancy.  My cardiologist surprised recently me by telling me, “Walking is our main suggestion for patients”.  

Even walking in the rain💧😗 has its benefits, as celebrated in “Just Walkin’ in the Rain,” the Johnie Ray song.  (But personally, I was glad that we arrived back home before the heavier rainfall began today.)  

Keep on walking.  It seems that it'll pay off.  

 Oh, another point.  As a resident in Oregon, I’ve been impressed that Oregon drivers are very conscientious about stopping for pedestrians in crosswalks.  Thank you, drivers everywhere, who stop for us walkers in crosswalks.

Hi, my name is David Kessebeh. I read some of your research on the religious dynamics of Sierra Leone which included excerpts about my family. It would be an absolute pleasure if you could speak to me about some of the information you've covered regarding the Kessebeh family. Please reach out to me at

Warm Regards, David.
