It is difficult to put into words what happens when I walk around with God? Difficult, because it is not about words, it’s not a head task but one of the heart. It’s about being in the presence of ‘something’ ineffable, which I call God. Along the walk I may occasionally chat with God, but I find I don’t have much to say. No need; answers come.
By the time I arrive in Edinburgh, the next stop on my walking-with-God itinerary, I trust I will remain in silence, solitude and simplicity even amongst the bustle of the city. I know that when I return home to friends and family, those human interactions will be simple. My prayer is to keep them so.
