A Walk in the Forest (WTRW)

Books to take along for a walk in the forest

I mean, it’s my birthday.  So I’m going to make this super quick.

It’s been 7o degrees here in Indiana all week, and I’m stoked because that means for the first time ever it is warm on my birthday.  44 years of cold.  The warmest birthday I ever had was 56 degrees.

I should have known that the birthday that finally made me realize I’m closer to 50 than 25 would be magical somehow.  (And no, I am not complaining about being 45.  I’m not one of those people who would go back.  You couldn’t pay me to be in my 20s again.  I mean, shudder.)

Walking in the forest

So I’m going to take my boys for a hike in our woods today.  And maybe I’ll take a good book of poetry with us to peruse as we go.  I’m thinking Coleridge or Wordsworth.  Or maybe just my gorgeous copy of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden, which has snippets of lots of nature poems by some of the greats.

Maybe we’ll take The Wind in the Willows and read some of the best forest-y passages.  It’s such a brilliant book, and one of my faves because it really sparked my imagination when I was young.  Also, it’s the reason I love frogs and toads.

Speaking of frogs and toads, the peepers have been singing the last couple mornings, and that makes me think of the world’s greatest frog and toad, Frog and Toad.

Where did you think I was going with that?

  5. Happy birthday. I’ll be 41 in a couple of weeks. I do wish I had my 20-something hair and face. I want the maturity without the gray hairs and forehead wrinkles!

    • The forehead wrinkles, sheesh. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think, “My face is melting right off. Why didn’t I appreciate this face more before it started melting?” lol
