So far the first week of 2022 has seen my car battery dying, my dad getting eye surgery (planned; he’s doing great), and Doc and I waiting two hours for a covid test (he got exposed at work; we’re both negative). Like I said Thursday, it feels like a lot–but that’s why there’s nature. The winter sun was out in Millcreek and it was really nice to just let my body walk while my brain stopped THINKING so much.

I find that I get outside in the day less now that I’m working from home, so I’m going to try to change that this year. Even if I can’t get out in nature, I can get out in the neighborhood.
