This morning I went out to Second Home Nature Center for a walk around the lake. It had been far too long since my last visit, as is often the case these days. I had only taken two or three steps onto the trail before I was close to tears from relief. It is part of my blood, part of who I am, but sometimes I forget how badly I need to spend time there.
After my walk I stopped into the building to renew my membership. Maybe I can start fitting in the occasional walk after work like I've done in the past. And for 50 cents I picked up a novel from the used book rack. Not bad.
