Nature was exceptionally fresh and pretty on that beautiful Spring morning at the Trace-Pitman Greenway when we took our routine Sunday family walk there. While we were in the midst of such freshness and lovely colors, I felt a tremendous surge of joyful fondness for the energetic beauty of Spring, not knowing that I was to pay the price soon later for this exhilaration. When we came back home, I noticed that my allergies were beginning to flare up because of the high pollen count outdoors. While making dinner in the kitchen in the afternoon, I sneezed violently three times and felt itchy in my eyes all through the evening. The strange and funny thing about this is, from that point on, I seem to have “acquired” a new habit of sneezing violently three times whenever preparing dinner in the kitchen as if this reaction to allergy had become a muscle memory.
As usual, we walked and talked about things that are important to our family. James and David threw the football back and forth just as they would normally do these days every time we are out of doors.
We ran into one of David’s clients on the trail. Kendall Burress was effervescent as usual while introducing us to his brother and two grand-sons who were riding their bikes on the trail. He said he wanted to take us out on the Green River Lake in his boat. He had taken us out there in his boat twice.
