I went for a walk to the hardware store yesterday. I didn’t ride my bike because it had just snowed and I was thinking about the ice and salt in the roads. I was curious if other folks had cycled that day, so I took my camera. My first subject was an old Raleigh leaning against Rosemont Market. It wasn’t that different from all the other Raleighs I see around Portland, until the owner came out.

This is Cynthia. She’s in her 80’s, was in the Peace Corps and used to work in Kenya. She was riding her bike that day, which is something she has enjoyed since she was 8. Needless to say, I was impressed and found myself fortunate to bump into her. It’s always good to get a reminder of the importance of enjoying life to it’s very fullest.
