I finally removed the lights from the front yard and from off of the bike. My morning commute is now truly dark. I paraphrase a comment from a character in The Chronicles of Narnia, “Always Winter, and never Christmas.”
January can be difficult. Yet the days with its incremental change for sunrise and sunset give promise of warmth. With temps well below freezing I need to remind myself that Spring will come.
Holiday break continues. Drury University students are not back yet. The streets are still clear.
Our fair city always has some sort of street repair going on. In this case the construction was just a backdrop for the lovely sky I noticed when coming up to this intersection.
The air is nippy and my little fingers are starting to go numb, but these trees will have shoots on them one day and I probably not think of the cold when that happens.
On this light note I present Jan’s words of wisdom in January:
Exercise? Just do it! Pills? Just take ‘em! Candy? Just eat it!!
