patches and splashes

  1. Yesterday a patch of sunlight warmed my feet while the rest of me stayed cool in the shadows
  2. Cold rain tonight and a long wait at the bus stop. I decide to count red cars to make the time go by - 11
  3. Catching up with school friends makes me remember dreams and ambitions that have been laid quietly aside

here comes the sun

  1. counting the new patches of heather, splashes of daffodils, and purple swathes of crocuses entertains me on my run
  2. this was the morning of elderly men and small dogs. I count five happy pairs passing me along the street
  3. "if you're doing it right, you should have a stripe of dirt down your face and grit in your teeth" - so goes my bike drafting lesson
