Hey there! My name is Laurie Lico Albanese, and this used to be my year-long walking project blog, “My Big Walk.”

Now, it’s just me, my books & my writing buddies. You can learn a lot more about me by popping over to my author Facebook page or author website.

  1. Hi Laurie, Here is a thought to keep it interesting for you and others. Have you heard of geocaching? I just recently became familiar with it…
    Its a great way to get people and out in the great outdoors. One can use GPS or not (how adventurous are you? 🙂 )
    Its a bit of a hide and seek game..”Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology and then share the geocache’s existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS device can then try to locate the geocache.”

  2. Hi Laurie

    It is always so exciting to meet women such as yourself, who are walking! I try to inspire all people to walk each and every day whether it is a goal, a desire, for medical benefits and/or just for the fun of it. I’m an active walker myself and if I can help you spread your message, let me know. I’ll help you in any way I can. I tell my clients to declare to themselves every day “I am proud to be a healthy walker”. Keep up your good work and your message. Best wishes.

    Good for you! I too, have begun a “big walk”. I walk my kids to their school then spend the rest of that hour walking around my town. I vary the route, but spending an hour alone with myself (and my iPod) has been great mental health and hasn’t hurt me physically either. Congrats for a worthwhile goal and the determination and grit to make your goal. Keep putting that one foot in front of the other…it is so worth it.

    Hi Laurie,
    You’re in great company among the great walkers and writers of the world: Virginia Woolf walked every day on the Sussex South Downs and in London. I think she got depressed at the end of her life because the bombings during World War II prevented her from walking. She wrote about her London walks in “Street Haunting.” D. H. Lawrence walked from Germany to Italy. That’s right, all the way from Germany to Italy, toting an appliance to cook along the way. Henry Miller walked his way through all the arrondisements of Paris and came up with, among other things, “Tropic of Cancer.” So walk on, good woman, and let’s see what the year brings you. Health, yes. Inspiration, most assuredly.

    March 29, 2010. Hi Laurie: That was you a while back. Your saga continues to evolve. I have recommended two friends from N.CA join in. They got the pix of the Costa Rico aerial first then an about you. you should have a place for recruiting new Big Walkers – like some kind of rite of passage? Ed
