Puddle

I ran in the rain today – nothing like a rainy summer run…

Puddle… What a funny word…Puddle…Once 5’11” and 9 ½ shoe size, am now 5’ 9“ with a size 11 shoe….The longer I run , the older I get, the closer to a Puddle I am….It’s mortality that’s in my way, otherwise I’d eventually liquefy….and what a wonderful thought…  it happens just a the crest of a long down hill…..swish…..I’ll gather at the feet of my three granddaughters rippling from their laughter and consumed with JOY as they jump and splash….

 

PS -A tear for Charlottesville…….
