"Just remain in the center, watching. And then forget that you are there." -- Lao-Tzu

Flowers of the season brighten a rainy day.

Who would think we'd need a fire this late in the summer, before fall is upon us?

But summer is not yet done. The weather for next weekend's 3 Day Walk is forecast to be in the mid-70s. Though I won't be walking this year with the team, I am going to start walking during my lunch hours this week. I have missed seeing the changes that nature brings to familiar landscapes over time.

I started training at the University YMCA last week with Tami, and found the patterns of the weight room to be soothing. In between training sessions, I'm hoping to hit a qui gong or yoga class from time to time. Along with getting my seasonal flu shot, I know that the more fit I am this fall and winter, the better able my system is to fight off illness.

I love Labor Day weekend because it means transition. For some, that transition is back to school. For me, it's transition into the next iterations of both life and work.
