Reasons To Be Fit #22

When you are fit, you don't care that you are wearing brand new white shoes and a long sleeve shirt that is far too heavy for the summer heat. Instead you step out into the sun, climb up into the brambles and reach, pick. You emerge ~ arms and legs cut, hair wet with sweat, shoes initiated by dirt, lips stained blue ~ with a jar full of blackberries. It's delicious: the hot, the sing of thorns, the ripened berries, my body and yours, being alive.
