    I have went on a daily walk all this week so far. I have noticed that it makes me feel happy and I like that I can see how wonderful nature is to enjoy. I wish the sidewalks could be wider and they could be repaired better.

      I really like my daily walks too, Derek.  I am lucky to live near enough to the foothills that I can walk on them from my house and enjoy all the lupine and balsamroot that is blooming now.
