What can you do to make today perfect? Of the parts that you can control, what will you do to make the day the best day possible?
On the day I took this photo, I was playing the Perfect Day game. I work up early, forced myself out of bed and squeezed in a 20 mile bike ride on a old favorite route when the air was still cool on what would be a hot summer day.
Frankly, I don't remember much else from that day, but I remember this part. I remember this S curve between corn field and horse pasture, just before the road makes a sharp right turn into the woods and down Abington hill. I remember my eyes tearing up as the speedometer flirted with 50 and the forest blurred into green. Then just as fast, the hill flattening out again and safety returning, like a calculated roller coaster.
I've forgotten that Friday, but I remember this small perfection.
