We had a wonderful time at today's AMM organized Nature walk with Mrs Gauri Mehta. We started with One sound of Om, expressed our gratitude toward our divine planet. The walk was very unique, everybody was provided with cues on what and how to observe Mother Nature. We watched movements, patterns, textures, sounds, and touch and feel. Kids and adults focused on these aspects, inspiring everybody to feel and look for more. All were handed pencils, pens, colors and sketch paper to make a drawing of whatever came to our minds. The most imp part of today's walk was experiencing one self through the reflections of nature through observation and art! We listened to the silence.

It was AMM Outdoor Club's first outing. Everyone gathered at Lion's Park. Weather was gorgeous with a crisp fall morning. We had enthusiast walkers, runners and bikers. Beginner bikers did around 8.2 miles while the Intermediate group finished 22 miles through Schenectady and back. Kids enjoyed the vistas on the way and of course welcoming a boat at Lock 7 and learning about how locks are operated. Couch to 5 K runners began their program and have decided to run Troy Turkey Trot 5K in November. The walking group plans to invite more of their friends.
