Bikers Against Dumb Drivers

I have a license plate photo of a bad driver, that I don't know exactly what to do with, so I've opted for posting here.

Last week, I saw this dude in an SUV pull a move that nearly cost a biker his life. The driver sped up in the lane next to us, past the car I was in and cut us off by merging into the left lane. The right lane had a biker in it.

I can pretty much promise you, you don't have anywhere so important to be, that it's worth risking this biker's life. Bikers go super slow, man! Just let the bikers be please. They are eliminating road traffic and emissions. I know safety is important to you, you are driving a Volvo. Don't be a jackass and only care about your safety.

For all the rest of ya'lls, let's do something nice for someone else today.

Zenspiration

I put out some work fires, gulped down my double shot of espresso and now I am googling things like zenspiration. I visited piccsy.com and found this picture. 




Very zen. I am picturing myself sitting on that stoop that's in the lower thirds, somewhat center. I would sit there, stretch my arms up over my head and take a big, deep breath and yawn. I would consider what might be lurking behind the other trees or in the fog up ahead and then I would give myself a pep talk: "everything is safe" and "enjoy the moment."

What do you see in this picture?

On Fridays

On Fridays...no really, everyday, I think about where I will travel next. Where in the world will the universe take me?

c/o piccsy :: travel

I know one thing for sure. The world is a big place and I have only seen a small fraction of it. I don't think it's my destiny to drop everything and travel to 70 countries in a year, but I do think I am destined to kick ass at work and convince my boss at some point to let me travel for longer than my PTO days would allow. Shhh...don't tell him yet.  

I wonder how other people see world travel? I've heard "you only travel because you are trying to run away from reality." SooOOOooo SoooooOOOoooo wrong!

I want to see the world. I want to see the world with people I love. I want to see it through a local's eyes. You?
