Spend time with yourself

No I don’t mean the obvious innuendo. We had some very cold weather this winter. It kept a lot of us in with canceled work and meetings, etc. One of the first days for it to pass, I had a dentist appointment. My dentist’s office is downtown, one of the few things I enjoy about going to the dentist besides his wry sense of humor. While I was down there I decided to park the car and go exploring. I don’t spend a lot of time downtown despite the fact it’s about a mile and half from my house. I saw the construction of the new library and that made me think of its temporary location. I had a former colleague who worked there and hadn’t seen her in a while. The day was warm enough to take the chill off but I still needed a sweater. I enjoyed being outside and enjoyed the sun on my face. I spent a little time in the temporary building of the library then decided to find the grocery story that was also downtown. I remember being downtown in the 80s and it being very quiet. That day there was much traffic and construction with there being a resurgence in businesses in the area; at least during the day. I found the store and walked in to a store that catered to a sophisticated clientele. There was everything to common items to find in a grocery store to a wide variety of wine. I say all this to say, I may have bought a 10 cent book and had my teeth cleaned, but I enjoyed the peace of spending time alone, and exploring downtown. I didn’t eat anything and didn’t think about food except a little in the grocery store. It was peaceful. And I walked about 2 miles that day.

My question to you, dear readers, is how is this related to program?
