Have you walked with a two-year old?
Have you ever tried to take a two-year-old on a straight-ahead walk? It just doesn’t happen. Children that age have an entirely different agenda.

The only reason for even venturing out the door is the prospect of the journey—or to meander—between point A and point B.

I used to write with a very narrow mind when it came to the outdoors. I only imagined my little area when it came to things like weather and the activities that one could be involved in. When it came to the winter months I never considered that while one area of the country was reeling things in, another part was dusting things off. I never gave much thought to the fact that while the temperatures in my region were keeping me inside, other parts of the country were enjoying the comfortable afternoons and evenings.
