I took these on a walk yesterday with a good friend along the Kansas River. There is something about this kind of activity--the getting our of town, the happiness of blood pumping through legs, the camaraderie--that really lifts my spirits. So I'm vowing publicly to make these walks more a part of my life here in Kansas. I'm still a little nostalgic for the Columbia Gorge, but I am learning to appreciate and love the beauty of this place.
And, happily, only a few patches of snow remain around town. We're experiencing a minor setback today, but I'm hopeful that spring is nearly here.
