Ah, California living. I loitered at my warmshowers host’s home until eleven. Lindy made such a wonderful breakfast, showed me terrific photos of other guests, and her dogs are so endearing. Eventually I did head out and took the scenic, though challenging, ride up Dry Creek Road and down (as in 12% grade down) Trilogy Road to the Sonoma Valley.

I am a useless person in wine country. I considered stopping at a vineyard, but just the idea of sipping wine on a hot sunny afternoon triggered a headache, so I enjoyed the scenery and cycled into Santa Rosa, which has some lovely historic homes.

My Santa Rosa hosts were quite unusual – a raw vegan family with five young children. I received a lovely gift basket of drawings from six-year-old Luna Bella and enjoyed reading to the others. After the children were in bed, Mariah, Aaron and I stayed up late discussing diet, life, and tomorrow.

About paulefallon

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.
