The quiet weight of winter’s first snow. The muffled softness of an unplowed street. The simple purity of a walking meditation. “We all need these moments. And never more so than now, in our time of hurried everything: when cellphones are never off; when work invades every hour of our week; and when we live, very often, completely out of touch with the calming effects of nature.” – Living Slim: A Canadian Woman’s Way
