Sunday, Earth Day, I got my bike out the door only to realize one of my tires was flat. Instead, I decided to walk the 2.5 miles to our friends' garden, cutting across parks and streets at a diagonal, pretending I was on a hike, keeping a steady pace.

It ended up being a full day and I went to bed exhausted. That's such a good feeling, putting in a "day's work"—whatever that means to you.


  1. It's so nice to hear about people walking and riding bikes as their main sources of transportation. Certainly gives the satisfaction of a good "day's work" :)
