Jed and I went walking again today.
Early morning fog misted around us as we took to the "Bob Jones Trail" that goes from Highway 101 to Avila Beach. (look it up on Google maps-it is a 2.1 mile walk-one way)
It's mostly flat so we could go at a good clip and really talk the whole way.
And we talked about life.
We talked about Jed's mom and how much he missed her.
We talked about Dan and how much we both missed him.
And we talked about the one night that Jed's mom met Dan. The memory of that night was clearly etched in our brains. Jed was so ill. He had bronchitis and could not sing the solos that he had practiced for so long. Dan wore the same fancy cowboy shirt that he always wore to "dress up" occasions.
The walk was all about that connection.
We walked and we talked. And we remembered. Together.
Family is good.
