• Another 100 Days of Good Karma: Day 141 (A Photo Essay: Red Dirt Love)

    Saturday, November 29, 2014

    Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today:  0.00 miles;  Running Total: 53.55 miles)

    Day 141 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.

    Justin, the kids and I have spent the last few days at the family ranch in south Texas.  The ranch is my home away from home.  The place where I come to feel at peace with the world.

    I wish I could capture a picture of the how fresh the breeze smells, or the warmth of the sun on my skin.

    No pictures I take will give you sound of silence the further you get from the main road.  I can’t hear cars out here.  And you know what?

    I don’t miss them in the slightest.

    I wish an image could share the simple joy of spending time with loved ones in the shade of a tree canopy beneath a sky so blue it breaks your heart a little.

    I wish a picture could convey that, here, there’s no need to rush.  Not anywhere.   For any reason.

    I can only show you how red the dirt is.  How it gets on my skin, gets under my skin.

    Everyone should have a place to run to.

    This is mine.
