Incidents & Accidents

Sunday, October 21, 2007


So yesterday the sun finally broke through, and I have photographic documentation.

In the evening, my neighbor, a friend and I went for a bike ride, farther west on the Greenway than I'd ever been before--clear to Hopkins. It was incredible.

I hadn't been feeling so good about my life--the seasonal depression seems to be starting early this year; maybe it's all the rain!--and even the break in the clouds wasn't cheering me up much. The fact that I haven't been able to run since the marathon, as my left leg is still giving me trouble, might be a contributing factor as well.

Whatever had been getting me down, a couple of hours on my bike proved an amazing antidote. The sunshine, smells, and conversation made me feel like a new person.

To top it all off, when we got back home, my neighbor's friend and I went to the Jasmine Deli for Vietnamese spring rolls, noodle soup, salad, and tea to warm us up after the refreshing ride. Perfect.

Looks like a great day! I'm continually amazed by you and Ellen, and how you two take self portraits while riding your bikes.

Wild women!

If you won't talk and drive, I don't think you should snap and ride. Heh heh.
