Fuel Efficient

Fooled you if you thought this post would be about something green. Well, it is if you stretch the imagination, which is always a good thing to be doing in these winter months. It’s just a simple thought today with a Mia Hamm quote. She sums it up best. “I am building a fire, and every day I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.”

Okay, where’s the catch? Well, compare what our landscape does during the wintertime; this very simple but scientific thing called dormancy. And when the match is lit, it’s a wonderful moment. It’s the scent of the Cherry blossom, the first daffodil popping. It’s that magical season called spring. So remember to keep your fire building. Train, plan and store your fuel for this very important season but never underestimate the beauty of winter. It’s that time to refuel and at the right time…blossoms, scents, soft dirt to run your fingers through. Set the alarm to light your match for Wednesday, March 20th, 2013!

P.S. Dave, my official counter keeps me up to date on such things. Thanks, Dave for your loyalty to keeping the count and reading this post on a regular basis.
