What’s now.

I was driving down the interstate to get a massage in the city this morning when I heard that familiar noise.  The same one that always gives my insides a little jolt when I hear it. No matter what I'm doing, it always makes me stop for a second and remember, and ache a bit, and smile. To the left of me in the HOV lane there were two bikes. A guy on one, a woman on the other.

I mean… for sersiiusnly?

Yeah. for. seriously! That's how serious it is. So what is on my mind? Well for starters a lot of things. But I'll get started with this. I noticed the other day that I was on the elevatore and there was a gaggle of ladies all bundles up. They were all in there dark grey or black over coats shivering or what ever t is that people do and I was mearly standing there in my short sleve or long sleve t-shirt. what caught my eye was the fact that here were several people acting as if it were the plague of God and some sort of absence of heat…
