Post-Namaste, Alison and I headed to Forest Park for a spin. Forest Park is gorgeous. There's a gravel lane for walkers and a paved one for cyclists but, somehow, the bicycling real estate seems slim.

Also went for a walk and listened to The Moth's Live in Boston show. The theme? High Anxiety. Steve Burns served as MC and asked each of the storytellers What is your happy place? What calms you down? For Nina Mitchell, taking walks in Boston Common calms her down. About her physical therapy, Mitchell says I was the first to graduate to a wheelchair then a cane then to free walking... I let the idea of free walking roll around in my mind.
Stuff that calms me down in no particular order: walking, yoga, massage, acupuncture, energy work, reading, bubble baths...
