I know I've told you that most of our property in the Catskills is wooded ( here and here) and shady. But we do have a few sunny spots and the wildflowers were abundant last weekend.
here and quoted from Walking. Rather than repeat the same quote, here's a different passage (a bit lengthy, but worth it):
"I think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least---and it is customarily more than that---sauntering through the woods ...When sometimes I am reminded that the mechanics and shopkeepers stay in their shops not only all the forenoon, but all the afternoon too, siting with crossed legs, so many of them---as if legs were made to sit upon, and not to stand or walk upon,---I think that they deserve some credit for not having all committed suicide long ago."
And how do you like this little pink chest? I put it in the store storage closet and filled the drawers with tacks, nails, picture hangers, etc. So much nicer than the plastic cups I was using.
