Thrilled to walk home today and skip the slippery, snowy road. Of course, I didn’t really skip the streets entirely – after all, I crossed the street at all my corners and the sidewalks were pretty snowy too. It’s actually a bit like walking in sand – but I feel so much better on the sidewalk and I admit it – even a little bit smug; there’s no frustrating wait in traffic, no gripping the wheel waiting to see if the car slides through the stop sign!
And walking in a snow storm, everything seems a bit muted, as if the snow is muffling the sound. The city sounds seem farther away and nature seems just a bit closer. It’s great, I love my walk home!
