There's a sense of peace when walking familiar ground. You know how much further you have until you reach your destination. You know the parts where you will start to breathe a little heavier and your heart will beat a little faster. You know when to stop and visit the ol' spot. You hear sounds you remember hearing on previous walks. Familiar ground provides a momentary safe haven. It reminds you of where you are in time.
Our short hike up Revis Lane East always brings a calm feeling of solitude. You feel far up away from everything, but still in the heart of it.
