Realization


Yesterday I discovered that, when walking on streets where I stroll fairly frequently, I almost exclusively stick to the same side.  Time after time - AND I look in the same direction.  Talk about a rut!  So, within one block of arriving at this earth-shattering realization, as I was practicing swiveling my head in an unfamiliar direction, my efforts were rewarded.  The whole experience was, quite simply, bike-tastic!!!

    1. Absolutely. I don't ride mine enough, but have been warming up to it, lately!

  3. Oh my, a super porch. That's what catches my eye. I love them...we don't have one...too cold most of the year :). Cute text explaining how this photo came about. You make your blog come alive....!

    1. I don't have much of a porch, either. Would love to sit and have a glass of wine in the evening. Think they'll mind?? :)

    2. No problem. I'll let you know how it works out for me!! :-) ("Mom! Who is that weird lady on our porch???")

  4. I have no science to back this up, but when walking, horizontally, on a hillside street, it's not a matter of left or right, I think people tend to look at whatever looms above. Maybe an ancient survival mechanism? I have to purposefully make myself look at the lower side.

    1. Hmmm. I can see that, for sure. I'm going to have to think about this, but I think some of my issues have more to do with the first thing that caught my eye on any particular street. But I can also think of plenty of times when I've looked up, and ignored down.

  5. I always look down when I walk. Otherwise I'd trip and fall
