A South Side Spring

Spring has finally arrived on the South Side!

I took the opportunity yesterday to check out the section of the South Side Trail extending from the Hot Metal Bridge to where it ends near a concrete factory. 2 1/2 miles out and 2 1/2 back. I stopped to sit on a rock to read and take in the scenery, with no rush to leave. That is, until the cold breeze became more than I could stand sitting still.

Aside from the occasional train that roared past, it was pretty peaceful. I'll have to do more of this impromptu riding as the days grow nicer.

Which makes me wonder: Do days grow? Would a day in the middle of summer be 6' 5" whereas a winter day would be 4' 8"? Does a day have a personality to which niceness can be attributed? Does niceness grow much like leaves grow on trees?

Hmm, I'll have to think about that for a while...
