Walking into the Dawn

Last night I stayed in Lodi at a friend’s house.  Since we were all leaving early, I got up at 4:30 to get a short walk before departure.  The delta breeze was brisk and cool but drier than that of the ocean though the train passing sounded like the continuous thunder of waves on the beach.  Meanwhile, the starlings calling good morning to each other around the well-lit, perfectly level residential streets reminded me with every step that this was terrain my feet did not know.

I headed west until the sun rose then turned and walked into the dawn.

8 days.
