Sounds and Thoughts For Your 6' Walk

Sounds and Thoughts For Your 6' Walk

Among the everything that has changed these past few weeks, walking has become a kind of strategic dance to stay physically far enough from other people. I've found myself walking quieter streets and quieter days, in the rain, in bike lanes. I'm not sure if every week will be about walking, but there will definitely be music with some vocal and ambient sounds since I like collecting sound bits. The songs today are akin to our walks these days, six foot walks, or in response to aspects of our new normal. (And hopefully) some are just to keep our spirits up. 

some side notes

There are YouTube workout videos of basically just walking in place, and they're kind of like zumba.

(2006, New Orleans Jazz Fest)

Came across this when looking for songs, and really liked Fats Domino's calm wave.

(Playtime, 1967)

From my back porch, I noticed a neighbor has been painting a bit of their porch ceiling every few days.
