Planting a tree....
Daruma from the Morbidly Adorable Tarot
The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today. -- Chinese Proverb

The color of my face after jogging? Cranberry! It's definitely beyond red. So I started jogging again after an on-again, off-again relationship with it over these past six years. This week I actually made it out six days in a row, two miles each day. It's small compared to the 3-6 miles I used to run, but it's 12 miles more than last week! Despite the bugs, mosquitoes, aching knee, burning calves, oppressive heat, and the hole in the top of my beloved running shoes, I wouldn't trade this progress for anything. The aches will eventually go away. The hole is heart-shaped, so I actually enjoy looking at it. Summer will fade, and I'll soon be running in the crisp fall air. It's a good anti-depressant, and my heart will thank me! I guess this is me "planting a tree!"
