I mean absolutely gorgeous here in the metro-DC area. Mid-80s, low humidity with a wonderful breeze blowing. It’s very difficult to be stuck in an office on a day like today, and I’m reminded of Isaac Asimov’s story “It’s Such a Beautiful Day” (Star Science Fiction, 1954) in which teleportation devices allowed people to travel anywhere without ever having to go outside. On a day like this, I’m sure glad those teleportation devices haven’t been invented yet.
I’ve gotten into the habit of taking a 15 minute walk at 10am to clear my head and get some air. I’ve been doing it for five weeks now. Today, not only did I do my walk at 10am, I did it again at 2:30pm just to get out an enjoy the weather for a few minutes.
And it was totally worth it!
