James and I biked up to 31st Street yesterday so he could run the kids’ Final Mile race. It was an oceanfront sea of children and parents. We parked our bikes and walked several blocks north to the start of the race. He was very quiet before the race, seemingly anxious for it to start. When the gun went off, we ran north with the herd to about 37th St., then turned East then South down the boardwalk to the finish, running the whole way. He collected his medal, a bottle of water, and was ready to head home. Very businesslike. I learned later that he had not been concerned about the run, but anxious from my precautionary talk about what to do if we got separated. Our enjoyment of the event would have flip flopped if I hadn’t brought up the possibility. Who’d have guessed?
I can’t do anything about that now, but I was able to remove a hurricane fence from the beach in the POD I sent yesterday.
Why did I erase it? Because I could. With Touch Retouch. When you can take control of a situation, it’s best to take advantage.
