Like a flower I want to be the sun that you grow to.

 Look who can't pose for a photo without drinking.

My entire family, in the surf, searching for my wife's glasses, which had been whipped off with one unfortunate wave.

It had been ten minutes, maybe fifteen, of scanning the constantly churning waters, we only had the entire Atlantic to cover. My poor wife, confronting the rest of vacation not able to do anything, really. No more matches, no reading or writing, unable to cook or even enjoy the view.

Bereft, she finally succumbed to despair, wailing unhappily on the shore when I heard the girl cry out. I turned to spy her, thigh-deep behind me, holding up what appeared to be my wife's glasses.

Not one to spike the football, the girl had an unconfident look on her face, as if to ask, "Are these them?"

Temperature: 80°
Barefoot run: 1 mile

Straight out, no talk. She hit the half-way mark and immediately turned around and headed back, no stopping. "Today I wanted a fast run," she said. And so she took one.

Distance (solo w/shoes): 3.2 miles

The past two days, the wind was at our backs headed South, and in our faces headed back. Today, the wind was going in the opposite direction. Hoorah!

Tracking Treasure Down
Dangerous Power - Gabriel & Dresden
Keep Hope Alive (JDS Mix) - The Crystal Method
Five Fathoms - Everything But the Girl
Emerge - FischerSpooner

Okay. So? Should I revise and remount And Then You Die? This week I am not sure it is finished.

Does your playlist mean you only needed four songs to run 3.2 miles, or was a playlist for a shorter run and you ran out? In other words, geez, what is your pace?

The first track is in fact the "Gabriel & Dresden" mix (that's what it says on the file) which clocks in at 9 minutes and sixteen seconds. "Keep Hope Alive" is 5:48. So, you know ... I'm not like magic or anything.
