Some of you may have noticed, and by that I’m referring specifically to the two people who asked me recently when my next post will be, that I was rather quiet this week. I took an unintentional break from writing, because sometimes life gets in the way.
Summary of my week:
Work, figure out what’s wrong with Napoleon (arthritis in both back legs, awful), work, bicker with a friend, work, lose a friend, work, gain a couple of new friends, work, buy a bike, work, learn how to ride a bike again, work, nearly get hit by an SUV, work, contemplate the meaning of life, work, wage war and plan the final attack on some grain beetles that found their way into our flour in the cupboard (the final battle will take place on Sunday after days of research), work, try to spend time with friends, and finally work.
I’ll be back next week. Upcoming posts will include my push for ending the current practice of allowing right turns on red in Los Angeles proper, the article posted by @LACityNerd about perceptions of LA transit, responding to questions about fear and safety walking around DTLA, and my transition from pedestrian to pedestrian/biker (and that bicycles not motorcycles). From what I’m told I need to get a helmet, lights, locks, and maybe some tacos before I can start to really ride around the city.
