    ***Interesting, Simple-Biking Related Ride Report

    Today's 38 mile ride through rolling hills, orchards and fields plowed or being plowed to lie fallow, distilled to a haiku wannabe:

    Clouds are high, sunlight wan.
    Dark earth in neat rows.
    Eyes lock with a raptor's.
    When my feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says, "Oh, *****, she's awake!"

    Late afternoon ride, chasing
    daylight, camera
    captures scenery.

    Then you use seven of them
    less two equals five

    Can't wait until sun
    Darkness must go more quickly
    With light comes much joy
    A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright
