Let’s go for a walk

So I bought a book today. Inside, the author referenced a short story that he wrote. I found it rather interesting, insofar as it was written in the early 50’s, but still sounds rather topical aside from some obviously dated ideas about technology (e.g. punch cards for computers). Thankfully, things haven’t deteriorated to the point he predicted in the story, but I do think that the people who go walk just to “get air and see things” are in a minority. People are often wanting to blame “kids these days” and technology for this sort of thing, but if it was a complaint back in 1951, maybe we need to hang that idea up. At any rate, it gives me an urge to go for a walk. It occurs to me that I don’t do that enough.
