What does the word ‘saunter mean?’
saunter is "to walk about in an idle or leisurely manner."
It's a happy stroll that is both casual and hip. It is slow and sometimes aimless.
It's a way of stopping to smell the roses without actually stopping.
Do you saunter?
- walk slowly
- admire the view
- window shop
- drink coffee slowly
- read the newspaper or do the crossword/suduko at your leisure?
Are you deemed one who saunters?… Do you have all the time in the world to stroll down the sidewalk arm in arm… or peruse the grocery store aisles without being on a time schedule?
If you are one of those kind of people I envy you…my life is a ‘mach six with my hair on fire’ at least five days a week..…
There is not enough time to get everything done that needs doing..and then add a full time job into the mix and you have a day filled with an endless list of to do items…
Then along comes the weekend and the ‘brakes’ are applied and we sit back and relax…and we turn into ‘ones who saunter’…
One day I know our life will be filled with time to ‘stop and smell the roses’ ..but until then it will be a ‘rush to the finish’..
We do slow down to admire the view and this blog is filled with those days.. and one day we know that every day will be a day to ‘saunter’..
..Today was World Sauntering Day..did that change my ‘mach six with my hair on fire day?..no..but it should have..wish I would have known that this morning?
