Entry for August 7th, 2021
I went on a short morning walk on my parent's forest trail.
I dream of one day being able to afford a house with this much natural beauty. In the early morning, there are many verdant green colors and a quiet (almost surreal) atmosphere.
A close friend of mine was encouraging me to take more frequent walks for my health, so I took one to the nature center down the road from my parent's house. It was pretty hot and there were plenty of bugs to be found, so before long I was sweating up a storm (I didn't have the forethought to pack a pair of shorts). Once I got there, I realized there was an event going on -- a wedding, I think -- so I turned around and walked back. It was about two miles in all.
