Outblowing

Nature is the best remedy

Lisa and I are trying to take walks every evening after dinner. Seeing nature blithely go on with its business is kind of reassuring.

The Dutch have a word for it, uitwaaien1. Literally it means out-blowing, getting some exercise in the fresh wind. Out with the old bad air, in with the new. They’ve been doing it for 100 years in the Netherlands. When times get tough, go play in the wind.
