I went for a long walk today. I do that sometimes, and I have a new pair of walking shoes that I need to break in, and I like to think. I started an MBA with Henley School of Management beginning of September, and I have lots to think about. It is inspiring and feels me with energy. The people that I study with give me energy. My husband is quite amazing. In fact I am surrounded by many very fine, strong people.

My previous boots were the new style hiking boots, you know singing, whistling type, gortex, with odles of padding around the ankles. My new ones are Lundberg, leather, rubber that breaths around the foot, a bit of padding around the ankles but not much.

My boots and I still need to become friends. I have so far walked over 65km in them and the right ankle is still a problem. My old boots were much easier, but these Lundberg are lighter, they dry faster overnight if we happen to be camping, and they feel more agile. These boots will last 20 years at least probably much longer, that is how they are designed. It is worth making friends with them, as one day we will be old friends. These are classics that are not a part of this disposable society that we live in today.
