Through new eyes

Meet Allison. She is not Today’s Nice Stranger, since I’ve known her for years (but not really). She is the sister-in-law of an old friend of mine whom I called Tracy of the Chickens on a previous blog.

Mixed feelings

Today is the 30-year anniversary of when I moved from NYC to Atlanta (my fiancé followed 2.5 months later, as my hubby). Mixed feelings. I’ll always wonder “what if we had stayed in NYC . . . ” Atlanta has been very good to us in many ways, and there is much I truly love…

So I’m about to kick off Year 4 as a League Cycling Instructor (LCI) with the League of American Bicyclists, and I’m curious about what’s next on this strange and interesting journey upon which I tumbled unexpectedly.
