Breaking Routine

It’s been awhile since we spoke, ┬ábut now I’m back. My thought is to post a photo or comment daily – just something seen or considered. It’s a commitment that makes me notice my surroundings more fully.

The Real Work

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,

and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.

The impeded stream is the one that sings.

is the mother of invention, and I definitely needed to find a way to clean the mud off my bike after today’s commute. I got this idea from Thomas at Downhill Nuremberg when I was complaining about the difficulty of maintaining a bike in the incessant rain and mud of this area.

My shower is totally lame for washing people, but it was just fine for a very muddy, greasy bike. My chain almost sparkles now, but the rust won’t be far behind.
