As I’ve said numerous prior times, a ride around the block for me is 3 miles. I’ve referred to this, which is one of my favorite rides, the 3-mile loop. And as I’ve said before, I often take advantage of just a few minutes to get out on the bike and enjoy that wondrous sensation of balance and momentum.
I like to track how the views change from season to season, and as weather conditions change from hour to hour. In fact, seasonal changes in combination with lighting variations during the day can call attention to things I’ve never seen before. Delightful new discoveries in the midst of the familiar. Like marriage, for example.
Even looking different directions from one spot can make a huge difference. Right here on my charming 3-mile loop, and just around the corner from my little house on the prairie, is this one little spot, from which all three of these photos were taken…within minutes…all within 45 degrees of the compass, looking west, west-northwest, and northwest.
Sometimes I am perhaps, too easily amused.
