I’m a computer programmer (sorry, the current term is Software Engineer) and sit at a desk in front of a computer all day. In a big building full of high walled cubicles. It’s very quiet, few people talk to each other and nobody walks around to visit. To keep my legs from freezing up I try to get up every hour or so and go for a walk around the parking lot. It’s a big lot between buildings and takes around ten minutes to circle. It’s an OK walk, all I really see is asphalt, cars and buildings but there are trees in the distance. Here are three things for Clare
1. Enjoying the bright sunshine in my face while walking, feeling the cool air and looking forward to it warming up. Supposed to be over 90f tomorrow (30c) – a little early (90 in freekin’ March? What’s up?)
2. Hearing the sound of a train horn in the distance, announcing its trip along the freeway and across some local roads.
3. Rounding the corner and catching the smooth odor of the sweet acacia bushes in bloom – meter high balls of bright yellow flowers.
