I have a new mantra: it’s never as cold riding as it standing in the doorway. The days seem even fuller than incrementally longer; no saturday rides and the routine isn’t really enough to keep the pounds away. I resolved to ride, even in the dark and even though the temperature never quite made it to 25º (-4 for you folks overseas). Easily the most relaxing ride in the last month. I stopped to take a few pictures, but it was much more fun riding. I just wish I trusted my fellow drivers more on the put in and get out portions.
Somehow the dark of winter is making posting hard. I don’t get out as much. And stuff inside doesn’t seem as fun to photograph. On the other hand, I contributed $6.50 toward the US trade deficit with China and bought an ‘intervalometer’ for my camera. This device lets you 1) decide how many pictures you want to take, 2) how long between pictures, and 3) how long to leave the shutter open! Awesome!
So I promptly took time-lapse photos of grading. Exciting. Then of working out upstairs. Also exciting. Then bicycling the next morning in the basement. This is my life. Exciting. The collage below has a sample of these as evidence of why, exactly, I haven’t been posting much. :-)
