bikes can change your entire perspective on transportation--cars, who needs one??
bikes can also turn your perspective on the weather completely upside down--pouring rain, can't wait to get out and try the new fenders?!?
On my first day without the suburban (campus cleanup mission) and no back up plan (empty garage)...the kirk really pulled through for me. Primarily because my mom was convinced i had too many bikes, the bike i was getting ready for today's ride was too big and 'dangerous looking' and that i couldn't possibly arrive at work, clean and dry, in a suit in the pouring rain...i rode the kirk to work today and arrived safe, warm, clean and dry! My only complaint??...mud flaps would really be a good idea--but how would have I appreciated them fully if I had started out with them and not known how much I could use them???

They appeared Over the dunes, They skimmed the trees And hurried on
To the sea Or some lonely pond Or wherever it is That swans go,
Urgent, immaculate, The heat of their eyes Staring down And then away,
The thick spans Or their wings As bright as snow, Their shoulder-power
Echoing Inside my own body. How could I help but adore them? How could I help but wish
That one of them might drop A white feather That I should have Something in my hand
To tell me That they were real? Of course This was foolish.
What we love, shapely and pure, Is not to be held, But to be believed in. And they vanished, into the unreachable distance.
Mary Oliver: Evidence
Anyone braving the elements for a glimpse of the swans?? ...I have a feeling if we get ourselves out there, they will be out there, too!
