Today is a serenely sad day, so I chose some earlier Elton John music to run with, which is reminiscent of my earlier days in Atlanta in the late 80’s/early 90’s.  My 10-year running buddy at work will probably be laid off in the next couple of weeks, and I will lose my best running therapist!  Who else will listen to me ramble on while running up a hill?  And my son has now finished school for the year and is away at summer camp.  No more pre-dawn morning rush out the door, driving 30 minutes across town to school and talking about chemistry and math tests, and then another hour drive into downtown before I arrive at work.  No phone calls from teachers, no mad dash to school at the end of the day, to see my son’s face to tell if it was a good day or a bad day.  I kind of miss it all.  My big house is much quieter this morning as I take my time getting ready, and then make a straight drive into work.  It seems like much of our time is spent being annoyed at the things and people that make our life busy and complicated, but the absence of those things and people is even worse.  So today is a little sad while I’m on my solitary run, and that pollen in the air is surely making my eyes water.
