Late summer in the city

What a day for cycling! Temperate, light breeze, sunshine, the barest hint of fall in the light and the air.

Traffic was nearly nil on Lafayette St.

At the Union Square Greenmarket, one of my favorite farmers was selling ice pops made from his outstanding Tristar strawberries (a part-wild variety, intensely flavored, reminiscent of fraises des bois) – just berries, a little sugar, basil. So delicious!

Oh, and Monty has a new set of handlebar grips: Ergon BioKork, grip shift length. The small size is just right for my hands, and the material feels comfortable. I like the color coordination with frame and saddle, too.

    Recently had blueberry gelato with basil at Collegeville Farmer’s Market, just off Perkiomen Trail.
    That recently was not as recently as the crash, tho. The gelato was wonderful. The crash was not.

    Oh Saul, it’s just so unfair. The cycling community’s Force will be unbalanced until you’re back on the road! I hope you’re seeing improvement every day.

    • Saul says:

      Everyone will just have to show just a bit more Force in the interim. The same Force will exist, just distributed differently.

      Whenever one feels they are indispensable, they just need to plunge a fist into a bucket of water and see how long the hole remains when they pull the hand out.

    Of course! But equilibrium and inequality can coexist.

    If I lived closer, I’d bring you Levain cookies, or chicken soup.

    Eating well would be a lot easier if the mere healing power of cookies were enough for me.
