Sickness BAD

The View from Springer Mountain, Georgia

Okay, I am getting it bad. SPRINGER FEVER. I was out today running (I have been getting into a running program of sorts to try and maintain a little of the conditioning I gained on the trail). The weather is sunny and pleasant. Birds are singing. A waft of smoke from a neighbor's chimney tickles my nostrils. And suddenly I am transported back to the trail on a similar day nearly a year ago when I was enjoying a delightful spring day in Georgia. Oh, it's great to reminisce. And think how I would very much like to do it again, if the Lord wills.

We shall see.

But for now I bask in a fever that I do not need an aspirin for, save the trail alone.
