I did a butt load of riding this weekend, both just to get where I needed to get to and as part of Pedalpalooza. On Sunday I , along with about 15,000 other people, attended on of the most terrific events I’ve been to since I moved to Portland. Inspired by CicloVia in Bogota city officials organized Sunday Parkways in which six miles of local streets in North Portland were closed to traffic from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

I’m pretty sure it’s been over a week since I’ve been in my car. And I count my self as lucky on that note, especially when I’m feeling so lost and being on my bike almost always feels so right.

    i feel a sense of safety and compassion in your energy, though we have not met in person, where i feel quite free to express all of my colors. so that is how it happens that i may help draw meaning for you.

    that was just down right touching thing to say silvia. thank you. really. and right on to the whole color palette. in part, you inspire me because you seem willing to dig deeper, get the grit of life under your nails. and then you reflect on it – turn thing over in your heart and your head. it’s that combination of experience and reflection that really resonates with me.
