There has certainly been a lot of folks out walking lately, such a very healthy choice. We have always loved the outdoors, walking is natures way of truly observing things as you walk by. There is so much to see in your neighborhood, and goodness downtown, studying the architect of the older buildings, window shopping and the murals of Kelly Poling can put you on pause for a bit. Yes, I found the Lilly Grove book, painted on the bookshelf wall at the Library—go find it. Visited Cultural Corner and studied the awesome art as it is displayed so you can see lots from the sidewalk. And Simpson Park, that’s a daily stroll. Just a great way to appreciate what is out there for us all to take in and be mentally and healthier by doing so. Just saying!
