It's the beginning of the workday, it's a spring day with the temps going up into the seventies no doubt I will be ready for a bike ride once my daily commitments are done. The air will be crisp this morning but I will breath it with a welcoming thanks for a body that operates well enough to absorb it, make use of it and the exhale it in order to bring more into my lungs.

I didn't obey it yesterday and I got a lot done around here that I wasn't able to do because of the ongoing weather of cold cold cold air, snow, ice and just tough stuff.
