Today I went for a long neighborhood walk. This serves many useful purposes. It gets me out of the house. It helps me memorize the names of all the local streets in case of an emergency. It hopefully will get rid of my extra weight and my high blood pressure issues. It gives me a chance to come up with new ideas for my novels. I'm participating in the nanowrimo event, which is the National Novel Writing Month contest. And walking is life affirming. I get to escape from laziness, telephones, computers, the TV and the radio.
The only down side is I get sore. Someday I'll find a pair of shoes that don't hurt my feet.
