walking in nature...

Today I plan to hunt for Petoskey stones in Petoskey State park, but the real value will not be the stones themselves, but the walk along the shore of Lake Michigan.

Walking in nature it seems is essential to mental health, and is one of those important human exercises most ignored in our digital age. How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain.

The stones found are never as beautiful as the one shown above until polishing is complete. If stones are not found, still, the walk will have polished the perspective and changed the brain.

Tomorrow I fly to Indianapolis for classes at Marc Adams School of Woodworking. In case you are new to the blog, let me direct you to the search function at upper left. You can type in a key word like sloyd,  or the name of an early educational pioneer like Comenius, or a more recent one like David Henry Feldman and see what comes up.

Make, fix and create...
