One Step at a Time

I went walking by the Hudson River this morning and had my point and shoot camera with me, so I took a couple of interesting shots as I walked along. This police officer riding on a horse with a statue next to him struck me. Glad I had my G10 on my shoulder, so I could quickly snap it. One second later, the shot completely changed.

Walking is so amazing and gives so much to your cardiovascular system. I remember learning somewhere that even if you walk 10 minutes per day it adds several years to your life. If you aren’t a runner (I’m not excited about running), you can walk. It’s also enjoyable, you notice more, you come across interesting stories, you meet new people, you get some Vitamin D in your system (which most of us are lacking) and you get the breathe fresh air instead of circulated building air. It’s also nice to walk with someone, it’s definitely a time away from distraction and a time when you can focus on catching up with someone or getting to know someone better.

I love walking and talking to random people. Just today, I talked to a doorman, who told me that he received a piece of art from Tom Otterness when he became employee of the year. Above, you can see his art. He’s famous for his NYC subway art.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Raisins. I poured on the Cinnamon–it gives the oatmeal such a great flavor.

Lunch: Tomatoes and Feta on a Whole Wheat Pita.

Dinner: Beef with Onions and Celery.
