Rediscovering evening walks

I just got back from a short evening walk. And it struck me that I had not done many of them since the end of autumn and I really did miss it. I prefer to take evening walks in autumn, my favorite season, but it feels good all the same. It is a soothing activity and it helps me get rid of the cabin fever I often get in the evening. It is also a way to get inspiration. Rousseau used to get inspired by them, as I mentioned here. Walking in this town, I thought about my post from nearly two years ago about my favourite spot. I think I might make a series of posts about my favourite spots here and elsewhere. You see this in a walk: you rediscover space and places. Does that make sense? In any case, for all these reasons, I will try to take a walk every evening.

I walk back home from my office every day and I love it! I just wish we had not changed time as I used to walk at the time the sun was setting.

... evening walks on a beautiful clear calm quiet evening are the best.
