From the editor: Step by step

I take a walk with my dog pretty much every evening after work. We usually go at least a mile, sometimes more than two. The things that run through my mind are usually what to cook for dinner, wondering if I need to do laundry, thinking about what show to binge or taking note of home décor I like in the neighborhood. I also think about keeping my active dog busy with treats, so she ignores the occasional squirrel, rabbit, deer or turkey in our path.
