For one day last year, I heard a bird in the neighborhood. I wasn’t sure if I heard it right at first – over my eight years living in San Diego, I had never heard this bird before. The second time it made it’s call, my face lit up. It was definitely the bird. Yesterday […]
I made it out to the desert yesterday for a little solo bike ride – it’s been a long time since I’ve been out on my own ride, I think the last time was in October. I’ve noticed that over the years the time between each adventure stretches longer and longer, which is a troubling […]
