oy, how I missed the Valley.
another splendid gathering.
just enough snow to get
in some kick, glide & skate
w/ Haywoodja, even a turn
or two on some fast grass...
then a nightful of pagan
rituals to the gods of snow,
stretch the legs on the fixy
in the morning, crazy good
hey Ullr, we're waiting...

the human body is pretty cool.
especially if you pay attention
to it, have payed attention to it.
funny what a little 'base' can do.
just the slightest hint gives you
that oomph to giddy up on out
of slum tempo slotting in. get on
up there and run w/ them dogs
into that blurred fringe world.
Pretty cool what just a handful
of hour plus Carlisle townie fitness
path spinny spins on the Jabber
can do. Just get out and ride the
bike. No kit worries, low prep
round town spinnin'. Tie the
laces, roll the pant leg and
find the gloves. Out the door
easy as that.
Easy as that to enter back into
that interestingly ironic pain for
pleasure cave of not quite over
the head, instinctual floating
zombie head flow that comes
when the pieces fall into place.
thanks everbody, felt
good to let that shit rip,
it's been awhile.

Yes, the Fish Magic
A trout-colored wind blows
through my eyes, through my fingers,
and I remember how the trout
used to hide from the dinosaurs
when they came to drink at the river.
The trout hid in subways, castles
and automobiles. They waited patiently
for the dinosaurs to go away.

OccupyBikeSeat was in
full effect yesterday.
Haven't pedaled the
roadie bike since early
July and had fresh World
Class hoops to break in.
So, what the hell...up
3Sqr into the Tuscarora,
and back over Waggoner's?
Sure, why not, seemed like
the day for it...ended up being
a fun 5hrs in the saddle, and
leaf peak ain't quite here yet..
amazing where a pair of 25c's
a few steel tubes will take you.
heading on out past that blue silo.
was really hoping to
stock some calories
looking back, there's
Meeshow way over there...
heading up & up.
30minute pave' climb
brings you here
pockets of color, pave' cruisin'
no pics of the concentrated
slummy spin home from there,
skies turned an appropriate
shade of steel grey cloud for the
route home, matching the half
bonked zoned in & out mindset
perfectly. at least the wind died
down, pleasant surprise.
