Do not put yourself in a situation that will compromise you or your values. It is frankly better to do without than accept compromise. Examine what it is that you want - perhaps what you want is not necessarily what you need. This is a time for improvement and betterment but you must clear away the old to make room for the new. Where there is a will there is a way, learn to operate in new ways and develop your strength of will.

I'm here in Sierra Madre visiting Andy. This was yhe first time I was able to run the Mt. Wilson trail since before the fires. I thought it was going to be all gone, but happy to report it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Those fire fighters really did an awesome job. Only about the first mile of trail we run on is burned.
Here we are at first water. We had a fun late afternoon run on Friday.
Here is looking across the canyon the fire damaged mountains.
Andy and I on our favorite rock along the trail. This section was badly damaged.
This was after our run. I saw this sun and thought how cute would that be if I had a picture of me in it. Andy calls me Sunshine so this was perfect ;)

Hey Judi-
They are toasters by Smith. They are the only frames that fit my face right. Most glasses are to big. They come with 3 lens yellow, dark brown and rust.
I bought amber and the rose's lens from smith for like 2o bucks. They have tons of colors.
I think they are around 100 bucks at REI.
I will tell Bill hi. It's gonna be fun.
I hope you have a great weekend.
