Nice walk on a wet day...

I spent some much needed time alone today on the bike path at OU and I think it did a world of good...I was totally alone and listening to my ipod and just wrapped in my thoughts about Clay, school and about 1000 other things.

  1. Very nice writing, Lisa. I like how you talk about the weather as if this is a journal. I'm sorry for your loss. I just lost an amazing lady in my life as well. Let me know if you need anything at all.
