Saunter. Mosey.

Saunter. Mosey.

The word saunter comes from the late 1500’s to 1660’s, and has been linked to “la Sainte Terre,” or holy land.  Thoreau said that persons who understood the art of walking on the precious earth were geniuses. 

It’s also linked to adventure, walking with awareness of the earth and beauty around.

It’s a wonderful word for walking with muse, with reverie, leisurely, strolling, loving what is around.

Then there is the equally wonderful word, mosey, similarly meaning to wander or shuffle about leisurely, stroll, a pace slowed for enjoyment of the walking.

How many times in my hurry to get through an airport, or a shopping mall, or even walking to a specific location, have I come upon someone walking slowly - moseying along - and thought how I wish they would speed up or let me pass.  

One morning in a line awaiting coffee before a meeting, I thought, “If these folks would just hurry up…”  And I could have been connecting with the people in line instead.  I could have moseyed into my morning!

Today.  Saunter.  Mosey into and throughout your day.  Take the time for awareness of your surroundings, your earth, the beauty around you, the folks around you.  

Have reverie for your walk throughout your day.

Saunter through your day.
Mosey with me.

In love,

Saunter. Mosey.
