2011 Last Ride of the year

I wanted to get one last ride in this year.  I had been looking forward to this day.  So, even though the morning fog blanketed the city, and surrounding neighborhoods, I met up with my ridding buddy, and brother, Don Taylor at around ten.  I am sure that people looking at us, riding down the …

Walking and Rolling: The MLK Memorial

This has to stop happening! The minute I stepped out of my cabin this morning, it started raining. I had literally looked out of the window. It was cloudy, but dry. Then, bam! It starts raining. ‘No big deal’, I thought, ‘that’s why I stayed at this camp site, so that I could take the …

A day in black and white

Yesterday I saw sunlight for about 30 seconds.  It was truly a black and white day.  But like any lover of black and white photography knows, the combination of black, white, gray tonalities, and geometry can create a beautiful picture.  Sometimes, things are better in black and white, rather than color.  I can not vouch …

Day two and three, what a contrast

With over 1,100 miles behind me, I am sitting at my campsite in Hillsborough State Park, in Florida. My arrival into St. Andrews yesterday was quite late, after a long, slow and partly disappoint ride. The morning did actually start out quite nicely, leaving the New Orleans area, and shortly afterwards leaving the interstate towards …

“So, what brings you to Cajun country?”

“So, what brings you to Cajun country?” Those words were uttered as I looked up from my table at Micky’s Family Restaurant in Kendall, Louisiana, by a young man, who stood by my table.  This was the second encounter with a curious passerby in this establishment.  The answer should have been, “Divine appointments”.  Instead, I …

A day of blessing, and other happenings

It is now past 10:30 in Houston.  I just finished watching ‘Remember the Titans’ for the nth time, and like an old marine I once knew, a tears rolled down my eyes, just like the first time I saw it.  This movie always inspires. People coming together, because of the strength of their character, at …

#13 is [not] a lucky number? Departure delayed

Here I am, the day before the scheduled departure for this journey, this trip, not having packed a thing.  Why?  The flutter of the wing of a moth, across the Atlantic, off the coast of Africa, and the sneeze of a wildebeest were the initiators of what became tropical depression #13, and is now Tropical …
