Day 10

romantic coupleI didn’t get to walk yesterday until 10 at night. My husband came with me, and we walked along Park Street under dim moonlight.  The roads were quiet and empty, clouds were rushing across the night sky.  The air smelled of autumn and the beginning of good things. 

 It was a helluva lot better than watching “Mad Men” on demand. And  definitely better than watching the news or Bill O’RileEm (God forbid). In fact, it was downright romantic.

The funny and graceful writer Anne Lamott has said her happiest moments are mostly outdoors.  “Go for a walk. Look up!” she says in this interview.

I feel the same. The more time I spend outside, the happier I feel.

Somebody please promise to remind me of that in February, when I’m walking through a blizzard!
