I was feeling really blue yesterday… just down and depleted. So this morning I took a long, meandering walk by the river. It’s been a few days without my daily walks due to my current heavy workload, and I’ve missed them. It really is medicine.

Walking slowly. Listening to the birds sing – blissful in their world. Hearing the water move over rocks unseen. Welcoming the warm sun on my face. Feeling the cold around my fingers. Climbing over fallen trees. Stopping and breathing as deeply as I could. Collecting tiny amazing things.

I am well again.
