Running in the cold early evening air in Nike Air Rift or Vibram Five Fingers. Utilizing the iPhone app : Attractor as I alternately walk briskly, run lightly, sprint. The park is beautiful with the elegant lights by a small lake. Looking up at the charcoal colored clouds over the midnight blue sky, I climb the hill and savor every deep full breath of air and the sheer pleasure of room to move. The crowds have gone and I and a few serious runners have the path to ourselves. Isolation. Peace. Nature. This is my idea of bliss.
Now, as I type, I hear the Wall Street Journal land in the driveway. Hello 4:26 AM.
