Walkies and Quiet Time


The best advice for living ever given comes at the end of Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, when Eric Idle in drag recommends, in part, “read a good book every now and then, get some walking in.” You can kill those two birds with one stone today and be thankful for both at the seasonally-appropriate time. Laumeier Sculpture Park (12580 Rott Road, Sunset Hills; is open even though the galleries and gift shop are closed -- it’s a perfect opportunity to go walking along the nature trail and enjoy the art in almost-solitude. “Almost” because you’re never alone if you have a good book; imagine a brisk walk to Beverly Pepper’s Cromlech Glen, where you then sit down and knock out a chapter or two from one of the classics. You’re not likely to have a better Thursday for the rest of the year. Admission is free.
