Great day in Philadelphia

Daisies
A lovely and timely sign.

 

Daisies
Simple. Profound. Symbiotic.

Even a homeless person wants to market their sign for maximum results. No?

Talent, from countless hours of practice, is the only way to know what all this means.

Regret Is Awesome

Yesterday, as I was adding some tags to the blog post, I typed Regret. That word came to mind because it was the key driver in the decision to ride a bicycle across the country. Or not.

If I didn’t do it before I settled down and started a career somewhere, I knew I would probably never have the chance again.

Job, career, marriage, house, bills, family, kids, responsibilities, worries, challenges, health, cars, vacations, promotions, yada yada.

And so on October 5, 1982, with $75 in my pocket, I left Philadelphia for Washington State.

Regret is awesome.  Otherwise, I would never have left.
