Riding home on Friday.

Friday's ride home from work.

Good to remember on days like today, when heedless texting pedestrians are clogging up the bike lanes and they look at you like you shat on their carpet when you tell them "you're in the bike lane!"


  1. This reminds me of one of my favorite cycling quotes:
    "When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart." ~Diane Ackerman
    Ahhh, good stuff...

  2. Ohh, good picture, good quote. I took your advice yesterday and rode my bike. Excellent idea.

  3. It really is a great quote. Especially "mind theaters" and that last sentence.

  4. Hi Marigoldie! I was such a fan of your old blog- I was sad to see it go private-but I understand... hope you are doing well and still writing? : )

  5. Wow, hi! That's a great surprise. All's well, and thanks for saying hello.
