I leave on my bicycle and often think: same roads, same fences, same old barns, same bike, same me … nothing changes.
And then I open my eyes and realize that nature, the natural world, is changing all around me. Beautifully. From minute, to day, to week, to season.
The same road is different each day in small and subtle ways. It is all the change I need.
Happy Saturday. Lots of things to do today … so many, in fact, that I couldn’t really make up my mind where to start, what to do. Spent the morning with household chores, and Grant and I debated heading down to Chattanooga for the Green Festival in Coolidge Park. After some indecision, we scrapped the idea. Then considered riding into town, a quick trip to the grocery store and a ride on the greenway … but also scrapped that plan.
Eventually opted for a road ride close to home. Another day of perfect cycling weather – lovely temps, little wind, lots of sun. So many trees and flowers are in full bloom that the pollen count is getting crazy. Great for bees – not so great for humans (or at least for me and my seasonal allergies). But the scent and color of the apple trees is heavenly! I just can’t resist being out in it.
