I’ve taken up hiking with a few friends. Being outdoors and in motion feels cleansing after spending day after day, week after week in front of a computer screen.

We’re only taking little, easy trips right now, breaking in our boots and getting in the flow of walking regularly.

The more I work, the more I realize how important physical exercise is for my well-being. It’s always hard to balance my office job, my business (I guess you could call it two businesses now with the shop), my other hobbies and my need for rest. I could work all the time really, because I know my goals and am ambitious. If I didn’t force myself to listen to my body, rest frequently and get outside to exercise I’d get ill from exhaustion within a month. Hiking is a bit like yoga, it has its own rhythm and works wonders to calm and focus the mind.

On this trip we were in the woods for about three hours. We set out quite late and the air was cool and fresh, lovely golden evening light streaming through the trees. I got worried we wouldn’t be out of the woods until the sun set but we made it, happy and hungry. I did nearly fall asleep over my pizza in the restaurant we stopped in on the way home. Guess I have a way to go before I’m up to a full day or week trip!

    Beautiful! You are farther ahead in Spring then we are. You have the Buttercups(the yellow flowers…not sure what you guys call them) already. We have had the dandelions(the ugly yellow weed flowers that grow in the lawns, for about a week now. I just noticed today that some of them have started to go to seed. We have had a lot of rain the past couple of days. It has been cold here and rainy and will be so for the next week. It is beautiful where you are. It looks like here too. I think if you came over here and hiked in our woods you would find it quite like your home. Thanks for the share :) xo

      Thank you! Actually it’s been cold and rainy here for days too. Our dandelions have been in bloom for about three weeks so they should be done soon.
      I live in a pretty urban area but it’s amazing what wilderness can lie just behind the city, it always amazes me! Hope you’ll be getting nicer weather soon.
