Serpent’s Trail, Take 1: Indian Summer

“Each golden day was cherished to the full, for one had the feeling that each must be the last. Tomorrow it would be winter.”
Elizabeth Enright, The Four-Story Mistake

And that’s how it was: for the entirety of autumn we had known summer.

So, of course, I was out taking advantage of it!

This meant a short, brisk hike up the Serpent’s Trail. Let’s call it what it is: the outdoor gym.

My legs pumping hard, and Handel’s Messiah blazing in my ears…my subconcious and concious mind singing in harmony to “O Thou That Tellest”.

Perfect tempo.
