I have my first water media class from ten to three today. I must be nervous about it, because I couldn't sleep. I am back from my first walk of the day. I left at 6 AM; it was still dark. The sidewalks were very icy. One good thing about walking at 6 AM is that there is less traffic. Some of the time, I walked in the middle of the street to try to avoid the ice (there was some there, too). The bad thing is that cars don't expect a person to be walking down the middle of the street in the dark. So when a car did come, I had to high-tail it over the ice and back to safety.
It's quiet at 6 AM, not many people out and about. No barking dogs. But the early-morning birds were just starting to sing. Not just dawn coming, but spring!
