The travel has been reduced lately, but it is time again to go. After making travel arrangements, packing, and completing assorted other work-related preparations, it was time to make one last lap around the neighborhood. As the sun dove toward the horizon, it turned everything to gold. Like I will miss my wife and my friends, when I am gone, I will also miss this place.
It is often a place of beauty, quiet, and refreshment. Like this mid-January afternoon on which I decided to stretch my legs a bit. When I don’t have much time, I don’t need to go far. It’s a nice way to end the day and cap off travel preparations. So I am almost ready to go.
But I’d rather stay.
