A day

finally some 70 and sunny.  start the day with a trail hike and trail run, trail slog, whatever, 1.5 hours.

coffee.  paper.

more trail.  saw zane and doug kayaking, hopped in a kayak myself for half an hour.  yes!

got news that my aunt katy died last night.  born on the bessarabian steppes, lived on the banat in romania, relocated to poland, lost a husband to black lung from the mines, fled the war to near hamburg, to the states, lost husband to brutal decades long plus illness.  strong, strong lady.  84 years.  r.i.p., katy, we love you.

more trail tonight.  ran into old friend of my dad's.  great day, hippie sensibilities, talked about old stories, the woods, geography.  took kids to hit golf shots.  played h-o-r-s-e.

a day.  a very good day.
