I’ve had couple of trips down to Surrey in the last week or two, once for a hike and once for live action roleplay.
The convenience of the North Downs being less than an hour away on the train cannot be overestimated. Get out there if you can: sunshine and play are the best restorative.
The sun was so low in the sky and the air so crisp and clear that it seemed that every tree had been fastidiously etched.
Not being able to get out into the hills and enjoy the early spring gets me down but them’s the breaks.
Jane Austen has Emma get into a blazing row during her Box Hill excursion. I find thinking while walking wakes you up to your own faults just as well.
