Retracing Old Steps

Daily Note

The universe has been pretty generous to me this semester and today has been no different so far--8:30 class cancelled so I was able to sleep in and join the Village crew for Manny's last day. HDG has big shoes to fill... or maybe Donnell will return. One can dream. Afterwards I tried to run the very first route I ever created in St. Louis: Greenpath (a triple entendre). Followed the notecard (minus a locked gate) but got lost in the labyrinth of alleys and secret sidewalks that only my 19 year-old self could safely navigate. I ended up throwing away the notecard mid-run and only after that was I able to remember the route. Perhaps symbolic of something. Also last time I ran this I was really mad at everything and now I'm pretty happy in general. Seems like a good day to retire the route.
