And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee saying, This is the way, walk ye in it...Isaiah 30: 21

Tho' we don't know his name
This man is ahead of the game...
Once he stopped to talk
When we asked him one day
What prompts you to walk?
He said he found the way
To get over his bad back...
He had no choice otherwise
But to set his health on track...
with daily exercise...
Poetry by me , AJP

We met this gentleman a few weeks ago to talk to him... we see him every time we go to town where he is seen walking from one side of the town to the other..I would guess him to be in his late 70's, but what a role model! He walks in all kinds of weather whether it be extremely hot, raining, or freezing cold.

As you notice he is dressed warmly for the weather on this picture I shot through the car window. Tonight we are supposed to have a sleet storm and the bad weather will continue until Monday.

    How I admire people who get out in all weather to exercise. This is a great shot through the car window of this determined man to get his exercise in.

    He looks well dressed for the walk, and no doubt knows how to deal with the extremes in weather. Love that determined look.. a very nice capture!

    I see that he is on Piety St. Perhaps this has something to do with his devotion. I admire his grit. (I would freeze to death)

    Thanks all for the comments...No, Richard I really haven't collected my poetry except for what I write for my images here whenever I post them They really don't stand on their own without my pictures and scripture verses for it to make sense...I don't consider myself a good poet but just throw some words together as my pictures are loading.
