Good Morning!

It is hard to believe that it is early June already and that it has been a couple of weeks since I've posted anything at Out of My Hat.

Although there have been (and still are) plenty of things to offer my opinion on, I have managed to restrain myself from posting or commenting on most of them.
Staying under the radar (so to speak) is a new hobby of mine!

This morning finds me across town at the Ozark Starbucks sipping on a venti 5-shot Americano and preparing for the 6 mile walk/run home.

Spring in the Midwest has been mild, but the days are starting to warm up and I think an early start will often be in my plans. I generally walk 3-4 miles per day, sometimes more, occasionally less. I'm working in a little running from time to time.

As I pass the time this morning, I'm doing a little people watching. Ozark is an interesting place to people watch. The Starbucks is located in a large grocery store. The clientele ranges from professionally dressed people on their way to work to those that haven't quite seemed to wake up and might have actually slept in the clothes they're wearing today.

White collar, blue collar, young, old, neat, sloppy, skinny jeans, baggy shorts -- they all come for the elixir of life. Some take the summertime iced drinks. Some take the fancy espresso drinks. A few are content with a simple cup of good coffee. They all seem friendly and nobody seems to mind the wait.

...And they all share the same look as they take the first sip -- it is the look of life! It is as if they have just inhaled their first breath of air. It is the official beginning to their day. Up until that moment, everything has been done on autopilot, without thought, just going through the motions.

But now the day can begin.

I hope that your day is a grand one!

Be well,
John <><

Have a great day, John! Having a venti-sized coffee is a good idea!
