I just walked in the door from an awesome vacation. I went out to take the dog for a walk... and I just kept going until we got to the Mississippi. The river bank was pretty steep, but we managed to get down to the rivers edge... I let the dog off the leash, and after he got his nose splahed with water and covered in sand, he just came over and sat by me. I guess he is getting kind of old. Seems like the last time we went to the river together all he wanted to do was run.... We took the Midtown bike trail... about 2 miles into the trip, I realized nothing at all looked familiar and I had the feeling of being in a new town. Looking over the river into the sun soaked hills, full of fresh spring green... I remembered what living was for.
