"I'll Take The Stairs..."
I think elevators were a wonderful invention- for the elderly, or those who are impaired. With that being said, however-I am certain that we miss out on a lot when we avoid the stairs. Not only can they be a great means of "exercise," but many times there are "details" calling us from beyond the sculpted hand rails. I have stood before the elevator many times, and just before the door was to open- had a sudden burst of energy-almost like adrenalin... "Nah...I'll take the stairs!!"
