took myself on a stroll

the saving grace of this city
is the enormous park
(which i thankfully live near)

so on my snow day
i decided to take myself on a walk
through the foot of fresh snow

an awakening cold
the sun helped legs move

in fact, the longer i was out, the warmer my body became
even warmer than being in the apartment
my warm toes and fingers reminded me
i need to move more
challenge my muscles
at least use them

a little embarrassing to admit how little i use this body
yesterday served as a reminder
for the appreciation i have to propel myself on this earth

i vow to take more strolls
increase the breaks from school and work

can you believe the colors of the snow before sunset?
get out there and explore

glad you were able to tromp around in the fresh snow and enjoy it! The sunset picture is so pretty.
