Darkness. The cold. Rain. Etc. Individually and collectively they kept me out of my favorite walking place and space. To borrow a word from Eliza Dolittle from MyFair Lady, it was “loverly” to be back.
Today was the first day of the spring 2020 semester. I knew it would be chilly and was prepared but was surprised by the rain. The rain give a damp edge to the cold but also added beauty to my walk to the parking lot at the end of the workday.
