Scenes From A Walk

Healthy Mindset – Day 26 & 27

I feel very fortunate to live where I do. Even in the middle of the city, it’s not hard to find open space to go for a walk while maintaining physical distancing. Yesterday’s walk was the best part of my day, as it so often has been during the past month. I went out a little bit later than usual so the light was different, and I went in a different direction to avoid other walkers, so it gave me a different perspective, and new things to look at.

It’s simple things like this that provide some variety when travel within our own neighbourhoods is as far as we can go for awhile.

The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings.

I haven’t walked around Wascana Lake since this started – to aid physical distancing, people can only go in a clockwise direction around the lake. Although there was hardly anyone out last night, it’s usually pretty busy, and dodging people doesn’t seem like a relaxing way to get fresh air and exercise.
The creek has melted, but there is still a thin layer of ice on the lake.
