Okay, there are 74 minutes to go in this decade.
I’ve walked 9,837 steps today — the last day of the year.
That means if I go to the kitchen for another glass of wine, I’ll have my 10k, every day, for a year.
Thought I’d blog this first, with 163 steps to go. More suspense. And I’m going out and won’t feel like blogging when I return, in 2010.
On my left, lacrosse in the football stadium.
Listening to Leonard Cohen.
Taught Jackie (my dog) to get out of the road and obey the command “on the grass.” She’s four or five years old. Still learns fast. She’ll happily do almost anything for a pat on the head and kind word or two.
On my right, students playing pick-up volleyball.
Took a few evening laps around the Catawba campus.
Spring is the best.
Getting deeper and darker.
My dog, Jackie, took off into the woods for a minute.
No idea where.
I knew she’d return quickly.
Listening to Ray Charles.
Hard to get a full shot of the full moon between trees.
Big, bright moon — much bigger than the picture represents.
I thought it might get dark while I was in the woods.
