IMG_4704Every so often, even cross-country cyclists need to deal with Activates of Daily Living. I spent most of my time today housekeeping: updating my bicycle accessories in person and arranging for some rehab work back home remotely. Still, my chores didn’t stop me from meeting interesting folks. Melissa Cistaro, author of Pieces of my Mother, shared a table with me at a busy Whole Foods for lunch. I also had a fascinating interview with Peter Shalek at Joyable, a start-up that provides Cognitive Behavior Therapy online.

Heidi and Martin’s 1916 craftsman gem is one of the most comfortable homes I’ve ever visited: a perfect blend of formal and informal spaces; simple but elegant details; and graceful proportion.


About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, 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,, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
