Julian and I are both in the thick of some assignments/projects with looming deadlines. Work on those persisted today until I got the hankering for a change of scenery.
So far as I can tell, we hiked about 2.5 miles before we were ready to go home and get some dinner (it was almost 7pm and we were 30 minutes from home).
What I know for sure is that there is something in my psyche that needs the dampness of the woods and mud under my feet to feel right about the world. And I could just gaze out at that meadow for ages.
