A Short Walk

It was back into the 60s locally and thus a nice day for a walk.  It was especially good to get outside as snow showers are about to make another appearance per the near forecast.

This also made me think of Florence Williams’ recently published book The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative, which in next in line for a read.  Her previous work, Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History, was worthwhile and is very much recommended.  Ms. Williams and Mary Roach (another favourite author) have similar writing styles and cover topics in which I am interested.  Anecdotally, I have long known that being outdoors, and especially in the mountains, makes quite a difference in my general outlook on life.  It will be interesting to see the science behind that effect.

Take care-and get outside.
