and they would not let me in!
I got to the gym early this morning. It wasn't open yet, so I took this picture while I was waiting. Light is a sort of beacon, isn't it? A homing device that, particularly in the darkness, helps us locate where it is we want to go.
Fortunately, I didn't have to wait too long. Then I had a half hour of having the weights all to myself--my favorite time to work out. Just the iron and me, with nothing to distract from our private communion of sweat, toil, and the intensely focused physical pain which can be so cathartic in clearing the mind of everything else.
