Even when it’s cold, I enjoy my walk to work. It stimulates me, educates me, clears my head, provides a little exercise, and lets me experience the seasons. Winter is beautiful, in its own way.
I like this paragraph, from a 1967 book titled “The Magic of Walking”:
“Walking is the exercise that needs no gym. It is the prescription without medicine, the weight control without diet, the cosmetic that is sold in no drugstore. It is the tranquilizer without a pill, the therapy without a psychoanalyst, the fountain of youth that is no legend. A walk is the vacation that does not cost a cent.”
How true. Walk to work? Why not try it sometime? I think you’ll like it.
