Amazing November: Week 29 of 52


Last of the apples from the garden
Since golden October declined into sombre November
And the apples were gathered and stored, and the ground became brown sharp points of death in a waste of water and mud.
                                                      T.S. Eliot
Fall melancholia?  Perhaps a let down from weeks of nonstop election jabber?
Can’t be that.  Don’t know about you, but I spent most of this week jabbering about theresults of the election.

No, it’s the weather.

It’s a good thing I promised myself to motor by muscle at least twice a week.  Sometimes it’s tempting not to go outside at all, for days.

Memo to self:  it’s never as bad outside as it looks from inside.

Sometimes it is amazing.

How are you coping with November?  

Update on the quest to bicycle commute, powered by muscle, 104 times in 52 weeks.  Week 27:  walked twice.  Week 28:  walked twice. Week 29: walked twice, cycled once.  Grand total:   75 (17 in the bank).
