Linger

 

I stopped to linger a moment in the small park with no signage that I have called Lafayette Parkway to enjoy a few minutes of peace in the sweet sunshine. To gather my thoughts. To clear my head for the rest of the ride. Not much happened, which was the point: some doves poked around in the grass near my feet, a couple ran past along the canal with their dog, a woman jogged up to the bridge, paused, turned around, and ran back. I think an occasional unscripted, unscheduled, no-deadlines stop in a small park can do wonders. A pause, a moment of clear mind in the sweet sunshine. Get up. Go ride.
