Spent the day cycling along Lake Michigan in Northern Lower Michigan, including two passes through the Tunnel of Trees. Cold, wet and windy but no matter; A day on the bike is always a good day!

“Remember, when you envision, that you are trying to state, articulate, or see what you really want, not what you think you can get. It’s very quick for most of us rationally trained people to go out to the farthest envelope of what we think is possible. We are putting all kinds of analysis and models in there of what is possible. I never would have said that it was possible for apartheid to end in South Africa, or for the whole of the Eastern world to come back towards democracy. And yet it happened. So that tells you something about our model of possibilities. You have to throw them away. You have to think about what you want. That’s the essence of vision. What is a sustainable world that you would like to live in? That would satisfy your deepest dreams and longings?”

“Teaming up with the National Center for Transgender Equality, Vocativ built a state-by-state map of transgender rights across the country. While we are making progress, there’s still a long way to go”

Riding a bicycle may have nothing to do with the elemental existence of humankind, but it does have something to do with the elemental existence of us as individuals.

Tomorrow I leave for an extended weekend of cycling in Northern Lower Michigan and I’m looking forward to vistas just like this!
