Summer is almost over. It’s not cold, in fact tonight is downright balmy & tropical for mid September, but the mornings have a chill and smell a little like fall and make me so grateful that I got out my trusty beach cruiser this summer and pedaled my little heart out.
Riding my bike is just one piece of the little things in my day that make me smile for no reason. Why is getting on barcalounger with wheels wearing inappropriate foot wear so freaking fun and funny? Beats me but I do it when I can because I’m telling you, a brief joy ride up and down my street is enough to make me feel like the big kid that I am. My bike makes me smile and smiling makes me laugh and laughing makes me feel free and feeling free makes me feel like making art.
“Live in the sunshine,
Swim in the sea,
Drink in the wild air.”
