Time to get working 193/365

I ran with my speedy buddy at 5:30 this morning. It went surprisingly well — mostly because he’d run hard in the heat the day before, and he was pretty wiped out.

Bug Painting 189/365

I’m teaching north of Tucson at Oracle State Park today. But it doesn’t look like that today. It’s raining and chilly. It’s hard to believe, but it’s so welcome after last week’s heat and humidity in Nacogdoches. I’ve actually got my puffy jacket on. (I packed it to demonstrate an improvised cervical [...]
