Tuesday’s morning stroll took Abby and me along one of our usual routes including the Morningstar boardwalk. It runs for about 3/4 of a mile between San Antonio’s Lady Bird Johnson and McAllister Parks.
The boardwalk is named in honor of Army Staff Sergeant Christopher Morningstar, a San Antonio soldier killed in Iraq in 2006.
I find it a good place to walk and think about losses of the past and the course ahead.
It’s apropos these days with so much uncertainty regarding my career/job/life of sloth.
On Tuesday, the boardwalk was draped in a visibility-hindering mist. I could only see the immediate path ahead. We walked on without much thought. It’s not like I didn’t know where we were going.
The balance of experience and faith comes in handy.
Especially if you find yourself walking through one of life’s metaphors.
