This article about writers and walking is, er, right up my alley.  I attempt to get in a two hour walk a day. I started because, frankly, any sort of prescribed exercise regimen bores me silly. I can't say my brain is a'hummin' with plots and characters, and I imagine my writing "Eureka"...

What is the purpose of the human mind? Why is it so damn smart that it actually becomes aware of itself? Ever wonder? I wonder about that endlessly. Can't help myself really. Like everyone else, my mind loves to obsess. My mind likes to obsess over itself. There's a word for that: can't think of it...
