I recently heard a colleague say that she had never given it much thought until she moved to her current home. It's giving her so much pleasure, in part because of the location, it's helped her realize how little attention she gave to her location in the past. I've been giving it LOTS of brain-time recently.

I don't know about you, but I'm willing to bet that you've felt overwhelmed, like I have, when first attacking it. You can apply this to anything, but let's
Happy November! It's amazing that we are this far along in the year. I hope you're looking forward to holidays and moving through this fall season. And speaking of moving, as you know I often spout off about sitting being the new smoking and telling people not to sit so much. Instead of saying "No" to something, let's say "Yes" to ... walking!
