This is just a casual line tossed down from one of my favorites, the {{LINK}} Baldwin ~

Like the swallows returning to Capistrano, the baby-seal clubbers to the shores of Greenland, or the sleeping drunks to Moscow’s metro stations, spring is the season of return.

or another, just laying around like some luxuriously lost addict,

February is just terrible and ought to be banned, postponed or transplanted to the middle of July.

He’s in Russia, doing his reuters/ap/newsyflash thing. and i say right on, write on.

nolie.jpgit’s gloomy out today, and i haven’t been on my bike in earnest since … Merco. yup, i’ve got injuries and work is SHIT and about now is when i decide whether i’m going to take up water ballet ~ because, somehow, nothing seems right in the world except my exceptional woman and the everything that she is to me.

so … somebody send me a link of something with kittens, or kids laughing, or flowers blooming, or some such fluff and nonsense.

or maybe, send me a race report about a bike event that DOESN’T bitch about who can hold a line, or who didn’t chase or who yell’d at whom at someother such silly race.

pick a brother up before weakness is succumbed to and the unrighteous smack the unthinking down.

it’s one of those weeks, folks.

    Good to see you last weekend,
