The Other Side

“They say stay in the lines, but there’s always something better on the other side.”

~John Mayer~


I made it to the other side

On my ride

Last one of the season

I reasoned

This may be true

The sky shod its blue

Days turned to chill

as the rider turned ill

Could there be more

For a bicycle whore

Another warm day

Before fall goes away

To get to the other side

And ride outside the lines

    I’m hoping that November delivers more days of sunshine and relative warmth. Let’s hope there still may be some days of riding ahead!

    Happy Wednesday 🙂

      I would go today if there wasn’t the work thing. Sunny and highs in the 50’s. Nice fall day for a bike ride, but may have to resort to a lunch time walk instead.

        In contrast, we are facing 4 days of rain 😕
        and although yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, I spent it cleaning the yard 😕😕

        Enjoy your beautiful day!!

    Something better on the other side of work: retirement! But for now, weekends and holidays. I hope you have more warmish ones ahead.

    This poem reminds me of trail running. Maybe that is “running outside the lines” for me! 🙂

      You go, girl. I have never been a runner, but I admire those who do. Put your athletic shoes on and hit the trail!

    I hope you get another ride in! I haven’t been on my bike since I fell and broke my rib. I healed and then didn’t get back on it, maybe next year. Yes, next year, for sure! Happy Weekend to you, Mary – the sunset photo you took was gorgeous by the way!

      Thanks Shelley! Even if I don’t get on the bike again until spring, I am happy I was able to take that last ride. Absolutely get on the bike next year. You’ll be fine!
