Passage #79: 5 January 2011
Wheels of Fortune
It is a new year. 2010 is finally behind us, and 2011 stretches out before us vast and unknown, like a field of dunes. What does the future hold? We cannot know, but of course this does not stop us from trying to read the signs nor from doing what we can to stack the deck in our favor. Expect fortune tellers, wishing wells and as many good luck symbols as one can reasonably expect to pack into a leisurely* bike ride through the city.
* It is leisurely this week not only because we feel that it is best to ease one's way into the new year but because the ride leader has snapped a derailleur cable and may not have time to fix it before the ride. Don't expect too many hills, is all we're saying.
