#1 - Memorizing a Herman Hesse poem (Libros) in Spanish while I walked at Moose Lake State Park. It gave me something positive to return my thoughts to when they'd wander to irrelevant places.
#2 - Most of my walk my mind was speaking uselessly. I was almost done and going to return to the car when I saw a small trail to my right. I was ready to leave but gave into the instinct to follow it. It ended up being the most beautiful and peaceful part of my day.
#3 - A the top of the stand of pines were some yellow maple. There were red leaves too but they were only on the ground. I slowed down and did some walking meditation and then spontaneously sat for a bit.
#4 - The way the water of Lake Superior meets the sky in the golden light of late afternoon and the end of the fall leaves.
#5 - A mini-adventure in search of a gymnastics open gym. The first place my cousin and I went didn't seem to have any gymnastics equipment. It was the wrong YMCA so the evening didn't go as planned, but nevertheless we enjoyed spending it together.
