Flannery (my bicycle) and I just took a non rushed hour ride home in the rain, smiling amid all the grumpy looking people locked inside their combustion consumption machines, trying to drown one another out with radios and looking at their mobile devices and talking on phones - the latter two which they know they really do not do except when they have too even though it's always unsafe and illegal; all the while I listened to the sound of some birds and tires and walking on wet pavement and the wind and the pitter patter of drops on my rain hood. It was really a very relaxing ride. I love my non-rush rush hour.
I need to get my bike out of storage and clean it up and make it road-ready. I wish it wasn't still snowing, I'd be out riding today! My bike isn't nearly so handsome as your Flannery though, I must admit.
