I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love the woods near my house and their wonderful meandering walking paths through beautiful deep forest. Walking in these woods is good for my health and good for my soul. Especially on a mild and lovely fall day like this day was. I was going through some stressful, life-changing things with the divorce, and this was a good way to decompress. The temple and the woods are two of my favorite sources for comfort and direction, and they never let me down.
"I took a walk in the woods, and came out taller than the trees."
-Henry David Thoreau
