HIKING, BLUEBERRIES, CREAMThe last two days I left my bike at home and hiked up and down the stairs in the park for exercise. I loaded my pack with weights and went early in the morning, when the park is at its serene best. The darkness beneath the big trees was cool and comforting as I walked, and the songs of the early birds gave me an inspirational boost. With a substantial weight on my back, good thoughts in my heart, and the coolest air of the summer around me, my exercise sessions were dreams come true. The reward at the end was special, too: a tall cup of coffee accompanied by a bowl filled with Grapenuts, blueberries, and cold light cream.
