Saturday, 30 June 2007 - Dance of a summer day

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for the dance of a summer day.

The dance of a Summer day calls my steps: may I respond to the rhythm and melody of its music. ~Caitlin Matthews

My "dance" is rock climbing. And, today, it's show time.

On this perfect summer morning, we load the truck with gear-laden backpacks and head for our favorite stage, Red Rock Canyon.

There, under exceptionally gorgeous azure skies and to the near-deafening roar of an Air Force Academy fly-by, I give a 4-ascent "recital" on two challenging routes.

S's and T's enthusiastic applause says everything. I've just finished one of my finest performances of the 2007 season.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
