A Leg Up On The Day
I hadn't been there very long until the neighborhood started arriving in solo walkers, folks with their dog and a bootcamp of 20-something grunting guys. I spent about an hour just out walking, thinking, and enjoying the morning. As I was leaving, a young man came with a bird dog. This dog was something - the track/park area is lined with trees - and earlier I'd marveled at how many birds there were in these trees, squirrels, too, I imagine - and when this pointer was unleashed - she made this big, fast sweeping loop, going from tree to tree to see what was there. So much fun. So much joy.
It wasn't about the calorie burn - it was, however, about setting the mood and the tone for the day. I've given myself a good start - a leg up on the day.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get your best start.
