i TooK a WaLK ToDay

I took a walk today.
To yoga, and I thought about a lot of things.
Like how green it is finally here.
And how not green it's going to be in Arizona,
but then I pushed that aside,
and thought instead about how much
I have to look forward to.
All of the possibilities that await.

I thought of music that I like,
and books, and the fact that I am happy
am raising a good-hearted family,
That we just had an awesome vacation.

That the sun was shining.

That it's finally spring.

That I like yoga,

That I could stop at Starbucks after yoga.

And get my new fave ...

A venti


green shakened ice tea lemonade

For the walk home.

That I could pop in my iPod shuffle,

and listen to good music on the way home.

Across the golf course.

And know

That there will be sunshine in Arizona,

and golf courses, and warmth,
and Starbucks, and yoga, and music and books, and friends,

whether I have to talk to them on the phone, or through FaceBook,
or in my heart.

They're there. They'll be there always.

And so I walked home.


And thought of the unpredictable future.

Smiling the whole way.

What an incredible adventure you are all going to have! Leaving all that is bad behind, and taking the good with you! Nobody in AZ can say they "saw what you did last summer!"
