I will try not to think too much about the overwhelming wave of depression that normally happens about noon on the Tuesday after a Sunday race. For this moment, I am fine... sitting in my little home office, with a nice cup of coffee, and the ash tree outside my window is the most stunningly gorgeous shade of orange/yellow. It lights up this whole room.
I took this morning off work, I have a doctor's appointment at 8:30 and then I am going to get new tires on my car. I have never in my life kept a car long enough to buy new tires! Is this progress? I don't know. I know that I have never seen "buy a new car every 18 months to 2 years" on a list of smart financial moves.
Snow is coming tonight... so I better take a picture of this tree, by tomorrow it may be naked. Isn't that a wonderful analogy of life!
