My bike is lonely (an ode to Spring in deep Winter)

Roadmaster Discoverer

We’re expecting 6 inches of snow and I am longing for my bike, which is lonely in my living room where it has been untouched since the fall turned chilly.

If the weather were nicer, I’d pedal down to Magic Island and sit on a swing set, I’d ride it to Taylor’s and have coffee.

But I can’t.

We’re getting more snow. And I can’t wait for Spring.

Snow always makes me think of a clean, blank slate or a new beginning. And who couldn’t use that?
