Walk like Thoreau

There is nothing in life like a good, stiff walk. Doing so has all sorts of positives: Burning calories, not a fossil fuel; being outside where one can watch (and listen) to the world (like the Vermont Air National Guard F-16 that’s just taken off). Yet, I watch daily as neighbors get in their car and drive the quarter-mile to our neighborhood’s centralized curbside postal mail boxes. What has happened to us that makes even that five-minute walk too much to accomplish? Read here about Henry David Thoreau and walking. Then go for a walk yourself.
