We are going to try something a little different. This week we have not just a required phrase, but a required beginning. Let's see where we all end up when we all start at the same place.
This picture reminded me of the joy of writing physical letters, a dying art, but one that brought me great joy when I was away from home for extended periods.
It also reminded me of a song that my workout coach used to use while we did sit-ups. Not "abs" or "crunches" or "obliques", he made us do sit-ups. Old-school, kill your back, flatten your belly sit ups. And lots of them. Hearing this song always makes me smile because, while I was away from home, he helped me sweat away the loneliness 100 sit ups at a time.
