Today we spent most of the day walking, talking, and singing our way around town. It's all part of a new program called iWalk Sebastopol, a project of the County Health Department to get people in touch with the noblest form of transportation for humans ever: walking. It was great fun to walk and talk and sing!
The walk started—and finished—at the Sebastopol Town Plaza. About 30 people began the loop around town here at the Plaza as the Mayor gave us a little pep talk to begin. Our friends and walking superheroes Richard and Brenda led the first leg of the walk to the high school.
By the time we got to the Peace Park, we had picked up the leader of the third leg of the walk, Jim Corbett, aka Mr. Music, Sebastopol's 2009 Citizen of the Year, here posing with my wife the Mayor. I cannot tell you how much fun I had singing and walking around town. It was like Christmas Carolling, but in a much more pleasant season of the year.
