But it's a great time to be out hiking, at least if it's an easy trail you've taken a few times before. You can let your mind drift, float over ideas as the river dances over stones and sunken logs. You can settle for half-formed thoughts as vague as the view to the other shore. You may be struggling at a crossroads but neither path entails the true end of the trail, each offers just another turn, one more curve to negotiate along the journey. Sometimes it takes a damp foggy day to see things clearly... and to find peace.
You kneel down to offer a playful dog a moment of your time, and you share a smile with the owner who soon follows from down the trail. No words are needed; anyone can understand the benefit of letting the mind dance once in a while, letting it wander from thought to thought just to see what's on the other side.
That's what comes with good thinking weather.
