the forecast suggested rain so i laced up my sneakers early.
the air was brisk, my pace not so much.
the trails were muddy from last night's storm so i stuck to the streets.
i chose a direction i hadn't traveled before.
there's the summit of buffalo mountain.
maybe one day i'll be brave enough to hike to it.
i found this guy walking nearby.
when he spotted me he stopped and posed.
i know they say wise old owl and clever as a fox but this guy seemed wise.
to my ways, at least.
there were twisty trees.
ouch i've got a kink in my back.
there were scenic views.
there was a curved road that lead me back toward home.
there was even a secret shortcut.
but i walked right on past.
why curtail the morning's offering?
a walk along mountain roads is surely a privilege.
but everyone has trees and rocks.
dew and dandelions don't discriminate.
beauty is all around us.
get outside and soak some up.
