08:45 am. "Gorgeous morning. Refreshing. Heightened sounds of Mill Creek rush away the storm. Leaves and twigs scattered over the road by yesterday's wind. Ease along 10 mph. Feel natural breezes flow thru the truck. No dust. Tires sizzle and crackle over the gravel road. Wood thrushes sing. Deep blue sky. Green foliage all around freshened by rain. Pause, take it in. My insides relax and inner warmth spreads. Foot off brake. Coast forward 5 mph. Pause by Oxyley Run for inspiration."
