Well, I can tell it's bike season; the trails and roads are now speckled with yellow safety jackets and my inbox is filled to the brim every morning. So, this is my "I am busy post". It contains images from my ride in to work this morning; more text to follow later today.

These pink petals were blowing from trees like snow (which means it was a bit windy). I was happy to come across this stellar accumulation of pink petals.

When I got to Raleigh, I looked down at my shoes and realized I had acquired pink spurs for my ride. Actually, now that I think about it, my ride in felt a little like a scene in Cormick McCarthy's Blood Meridian---the only thing missing was a meal of corn tortillas & beans and a brutal fight with Indians on a desert plain.

More later.

Awesome post! That totally rocks!

Wysteria trees around here blow lavender-colored petals all over the place. It's sweet... except for the stains they used to leave on my old '64 Plymouth Valiant (it was white).

Thanks Tim. As beautiful and as wonderful those pink pedals were this morning I am attributing the crazy head cold I had for the past 5 days to that lovely pile of pink.

Stains on white cars and stains on my sinuses - how can something so lovey be a bother? Actually, I guess this is why we ride bikes - they are so magical yet they are so painful. I suppose a balance of pleasure and reality is a nice equation to be toting around. Cheers.
