Sunday morning hike with music in my head


SouthMountain, originally uploaded by RobinJP.

Out early on a hike in the desert hills near South Phoenix. South Mountain has a wonderful loop that I love to run/walk. Part of it is along a flat access road. And more than half of it is up and down rocky ridges. It's grueling and fun.

As I took off today, I discovered my iPod was out of juice. I had only my own brain to entertain me.

That worked for about 45 minutes. Then I began a word-association game. The rhythm kept me bouncing down the hills.

This is how it went:

Brick.
brick house

House.
house sitter

Sitter.
sitter dog

Dog.
dog cat

Cat.
cat nap

Nap.
nap sleep

Sleep.
sleep eat

Eat.
eat love

Love.
love heart

Heart.
heart red

Red.
red brick

Brick.
brick house


Oh yeah.. it was fun. White-lady hip-hop.

I'm juicing my iPod as I write this.
