I love reading books. There's something inherently satisfying about turning pages, getting lost in another world, learning something new, then putting them on your shelf after reading them or giving them away to friends. They help me fall asleep at night and cure boredom on a rainy day.
Well, I made it. Safely, happily, no pain, no regrets. Now I have this blog and hundreds of pictures to remind me of the experience!
...But you wait, you give your life's length to listening, and nothing happens. The ice rolls up, the ice rolls back, and still that single note obtains. The tension, or lack of it, is intolerable. The silence is not actually suppression: instead, it is all there is.” -Annie Dillard
I got here yesterday, December 8th. Which means it took me just a day under 3 months to bike 4,150 miles!
