Running east this morning toward a grinning crescent moon, Venus danced in my eyes as I paced. Rarely do I run in silence. Today was different. My knees lifted a little higher, my breathing more level and rhythmic. I turn off the iPod and listen to the morning.

My eyes delighted by the glorious BeeHive star cluster . I hear the waves of Lake Pontchartrain breaking in the darkness and smell the faint saltness that reminds me that the oceans run in my veins. What a fantastic day to be alive.

Outloud I channel  Hemingway. “Best of all He loved the Fall…..”

Outloud I channel  Todd Beamer ” lets roll…”

Thanks to Jeffery L. Hunt for the photo of this glorious morning
