For the next week or so, my trip will take on a different rhythm, as I will be four days around Seattle and then visiting my niece and her family in Dupont. In the early morning I took a gorgeous ride from Sultan to Monroe. I spent most of the day there setting up my Seattle itinerary and interviewing a Microsoft consultant. Then in late afternoon I took an equally tranquil ride to Bothell. Except that somewhere I made a wrong turn, went way out of my way, and was running late. I decided to get onto Highway 523 to avoid being too late. Oops, bad shoulder and another flat tire. My sixth for the trip. At least I am getting speedy at the repairs. I arrived in Bothell late but warmshowers hosts are understanding about the delays that accompany bike travel.
Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA.
My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition.
During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question.
Thank you for visiting.
