On Saturday, our daughter Faith asked me if I’d like to go on a hike with her on Sunday. I’m not really prepared for winter hiking, but we weren’t really looking at a winter day. We haven’t had any snow in weeks, and Sunday’s temps were going to be above 50°f (10°c). I haven’t been hiking in a while, and I haven’t hiked in winter since I was in my early 20s. Still it was nice to get out on a muddy trail, cross some well-worn paths, climb a few rock outcrops and see some things I don’t normally see.
This is the time of year when we folks in the north start thinking about spring and getting ready to end our hibernation and take part in everything the reborn world will offer. It’s also the point where Major League Baseball’s spring training has started. I always mark this time of year with one of my favorite songs. I’ve shared it here before, but it has special meaning this year.
“Put me in coach, I’m ready to play today.”
