Or as a time of great uprisings, of waves of solidarity, and determined hope, and visions of a better future, around the world?
Today’s fun: A 12 km Port Meadow walk. Air temperature 7c, water temperature 6.2c. We saw not one, but two groups of swimmers. Brrr.

With many thanks to Sam and Anne Cowan, I’ll be dipping into all of these books over the next several weeks, starting, today, with Oxford on Foot, published by the Oxford Pedestrian Association. 🦶📚
