There's noting better than a good walk in the woods.

"The most important thing people did for me, was to expose me to new things."
Temple Grandin

"And hand in hand, in the center of the kitchen, 
they danced by the sound of music in their hearts." - Me

So true! A peaceful walk through the woods calms the spirit and refreshes! I just wish I didn't have to slog through mud right now...but soon it'll be AWESOME!

A walk in the woods is wonderful!
Thanks for the link to your Gehry post. He is to build a large condo complex here and I am so looking forward to it. He was actually born in Toronto and his grandparents lived a block away from the AGO.
