The reasons are simple.
To be outside and know what the Earth is up to.
To feel the air, to know the temperature as I move along.
To stop at a favorite place overlooking the Mississippi River. Each day I do this my view is unique. Same place, completely different each time. Today I looked down and got to spend a few minutes with a Bald Eagle. My view today.
Mixed with spring green trees, blue sky and calm waters. The sun striking trees and bridges and reflecting brightly.
I will do this again. Soon. Tomorrow. It won’t be the same.
