Every morning for nine days I got up about 4-6 AM to walk early, watch the sunrise, and avoid 100-106° heat and humidity that would come later in the day in Irving Texas. But even this early, the temperature was in the 80s and it was Muggy. The walk around the artificial lake is 1.3 miles and I would walk it three times, often as the stars twinkled out and the sun rose. I loved how the sweet scent of flowers greeting the morning sky. I liked all the artificial beauty, the lines, perfectly spaced trees, perfectly spaced light posts all in a row. I loved the statue of the dancers, people walking their dogs, people absorbed in their headphones, the sound of birds. I loved how good it felt to walk!
