Today there was supposed to be a 60ish road ride with new riding buddy JW. But it was not to be.
After spending the better part of the night ridding myself of the cause of a mild case of food poisoning, I was in no condition to ride and certainly not of a mind to stray that far from home.
So I spent the better part of the day reading a recent biography of one of my favorite writers, W. Somerset Maugham, and convalescing.
In the late afternoon and feeling human once again, I ventured out to the market and to look at a used bike from Craigslist.
I bought food for dinner, a chicken to roast tomorrow–and said bicycle. More about that tomorrow.
So, not a total loss. And sometimes one just needs a day of reading and listening to Bach.
