A Heart-Gladdening Walk

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.” ~ John Muir I felt raw yesterday, raw and exhausted and all used up. (not sure why, read this post) I tried to sit at my desk and work, but couldn’t find […]
