[more] Photos from a moving train…

So as mentioned in my previous post, I was out of town for the weekend. And I’ve posted similar photos as these in the past, but whenever I go the month is different and so is the weather and season, which of course changes the view. Sorry if you are growing tired of these viewsContinue reading “[more] Photos from a moving train…”

The view from my handlebars, a few thoughts on Ash Wednesday/Lent, and things to be thankful for…

So there I was anxious and rushing to get home from the community center on yet another single digit evening so I could make it to the opening time of an online class that began tonight, but then I had to stop for yet another traffic light (pictured above). Why, I thought, did I hitContinue reading “The view from my handlebars, a few thoughts on Ash Wednesday/Lent, and things to be thankful for…”

Two views from my handlebars (in really cold and snowy weather)…

These were taken on two separate nights; the top photo last night and the one below tonight. The weather has been pretty much unchanged…bitterly cold and somewhat constant snow. But I am not complaining about this as I work in a kitchen and would actually take this weather over 90F and humid. There is somethingContinue reading “Two views from my handlebars (in really cold and snowy weather)…”

The view from my handlebars, or the beauty right in front of me, or a few things I saw while riding my bike today…

It’s always sort of invigorating to finish a project no matter how big or small. This morning, for example, I finished a short paper that I had to write and I thought I’d reward myself with a bike ride and take a few photos. I rode first through my neighborhood and the downtown area, thenContinue reading “The view from my handlebars, or the beauty right in front of me, or a few things I saw while riding my bike today…”

The (same) view from my handlebars (but six months apart) and quote that inspires me…

I likely speak for other all-weather cyclists out there when I say that this winter has been challenging on many levels. I pass this hidden little alley many times during my week and have taken multiple photos of it. Today (the bottom photo) it looked especially beautiful as I passed it so I snapped anotherContinue reading “The (same) view from my handlebars (but six months apart) and quote that inspires me…”

(iPhone) Photos from a Moving Train…

 So I was in NYC this past weekend again and these are photos I snapped with my iPhone along the way. It’s amazing what a couple of days and a few hundred miles make. The two above were taken on the way there (even though the warm colors it was still frigid outside) and thoseContinue reading “(iPhone) Photos from a Moving Train…”

Dans le jardin…

So I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions how fortunate I am to work in a place that is not only such an incredibly beautiful building, but also has such a lovely garden. And on some days–as a form of stress relief–I’ll go out in the garden on my lunch break. It’s interesting in that exactly oneContinue reading “Dans le jardin…”
