|Acacia blossoms among last years seed pods|
Time for spring cleaning. Old thoughts, disposed of like so many glossy magazines stoking desires for next year's lighter, more responsive, stiffer model. I will endeavor to speak truthful words. I will endeavor to speak helpful words. I will renounce cringing. I am currently reading Pay Attention, for Goodness' Sake: The Buddhist Path of Kindness By Sylvia Boorstein. Love it. An excellent guide to cycling in heavy traffic. G00g1e search for "renounce cringing" returned one hit prior to this post: that book. I guess a proper review would include a more explicit exposition of why I love it, or why I think it's an excellent guide to cycling in heavy traffic. Because it is spring cleaning time. Because the acacia trees are exploding in flowers. Since I rode my bicycle through a cloud of them swirling on a windy day, I hereby renounce cringing. The first step is right here. Get up. Go ride.
