ahhh, last thursday i finally got outside for a short walk to the prairie. maybe next time we’ll leave early enough to actually walk around the prairie and still see the lovely winter blues. a lot of people in Illinois don’t shovel their sidewalks and the town doesn’t plow. it makes walking difficult and i complain, but i also think i forget how often the two paths to campus in Maine were a similarly a bruised-butt waiting to happen.
i need to get out more.
i’ll make a resolution for myself to act more on my impulses to drive out into the cornfields to see the lake, the cows, some windmills, or just the big ol’ sky. it’s so easy to just stay inside this time of year.
