One of the advantages of walking versus cycling or driving is that one often finds little surprises that one might otherwise have missed. Pictured below, for example, are some of the flowers I encountered during my previous walk.
(Weather permitting, on my non-teaching days I like to ditch my car after dropping my daughter off at her school; walk home via Dubstread, Orlando’s oldest golf course; shower and then make myself a Cuban-style cafe con leche; devote the rest of my morning to reading or writing, or both; prepare brunch for my wife and me around Noon; clean out my inbox and respond to emails; and then walk back to my daughter’s school when it’s time to pick her up at 3. The rest of my day is devoted to office hours via Zoom and then to my family, i.e. dinner and a movie.)
