No bike today; forced to take the Red Line.


Coming out of the Cambridge tunnel, about to cross the Charles into Boston…

The bike path along the Charles can be a dangerous place.


Canadian Geese don’t take no shit from bikers or runners. Neither do their spring hatchlings.

But *everyone’s* been to see Old Ironsides (except me)


My commute brings me within a block of the Charlestown Navy Yard but I’ve never been there before. So tonight me and the bike went and played tourist for a bit.

Did you ever think about how weird bulbs are?


In the fall, you dig a hole in the ground and put this thing that looks like an onion.
Then, after winter’s over and the snow melts away, a daffodil pokes its head up.

We’re everywhere


Because we have a popular-vote-losing president, who in his first hundred days has shown himself to surround himself with like-minded people who trade in lies, dismissal of the poor and sick, bigotry, fear, and xenophobia, good people all over the country have decided to take the real greatness of America into their own hands. Like this sign at a studio at Mill # 5 in Lowell.
