Birds and Roads

On our morning run today, the birds were singing enthusiastically. A couple of weeks ago, no birds sang, and then we heard a single bird who became more birds as the days passed. Yesterday, the birds were ubiquitous, are ubiquitous. Winter ended in a few days. Life and the living have returned.

Our training comprises a 3 mile daily run most days, except the weekends. It seems to be the perfect cross-training. It has certainly worked for us all these years. We usually leave between 5 and 6 a.m daily, all year. And then we go on a 400 mile walk for 3 weeks. Only this year it will be less, 300 miles or so because--because of time, logistics and life that gets in the way. It's all about choices -- the ones we make and the ones we miss or fail to make. I'm getting to the time of my life where these options are more urgent. For the road not taken, there may not be an option to return to it. The road not taken is all too often and irreparably, the road lost.

So, off to New Mexico and trust that the path will reveal itself.
