OMG. This morning was the first time in a week I have been back to spin class. So not good. I was sweating and panting, and my legs were cramping and my ass hurt, and then I walked into spin class...

Sticks and Stones

The beach was pretty much empty.  Besides me, there were a couple of ladies with several kids hanging out by the shoreline.  These kids just finished having a surfing lesson.  One of the kids was a girl of about ten.  She abandoned her surfboard by the shoreline, and was heading into the ocean to frolic and play.  Her mother called her name, trying to get her attention.  The girl didn’t hear....more
