Paused during the pell mell ride along the trail this morning. Sunglasses had clattered to the ground and you needed to walk the bike backwards a few steps. Sudden transition to stillness, to absence of huffing and puffing, to raw unfiltered sunlight. Birdsong sharp and multi-tiered. You really do hear better with your glasses off.
Dozed off during the afternoon session at a meeting table while the lawyer was talking. Or rather droning on, in measured grammatically impeccable clauses.
Rode home in spattering rain.
7am, early May
sunlight on dewdamp grass, the air
fresh in your throat
