Tuesday’s Bike Ride Commute (4/19/11)
Despite my horrific day at work, the crying and hyperventilating that followed said day at work, and the sudden and unbearably hot and humid weather, there was one good thing about Tuesday: I got to ride my bike again. Actually, there were a number of really great things about Tuesday: the bike ride, eating lunch outside (trying to recover from my wretched morning), beautiful evening sunlight in which to photograph my everyday life, and a phone call from a handsome gentleman who responded to my SOS signal.
Life never unfolds in tones of black and white. It’s always grey, sunshine and clouds and the occasional rainstorm all circling around each other. I may not be a rockstar scientist (YET!), but I have my health, my bike, and good shoulders on which to cry, metaphorically or in the flesh. All things considered, I’m doing pretty well.
