Time out

It's been one of those days. At work the boss is away, the clients are moaning for this that and the other. I stay back an extra half hour to finish a set of accounts for a client (who couldn't make up his mind about his deadline), before setting off way too late and trying to make up time, riding really fast down the coast to the latest Bicycle Gold Coast meeting (these things rarely start at the stated time, but I know if I'm late, this will be the one, and in anycase, there's pride at stake). And it had been like this for nine hours straight.

However, alongside the beachfront at Miami, for just one moment, the sky is lit up just so, by a powerful sunset on the opposite horizon (sadly, obsured by suburbia). It's that moment, where the ride reveals itself in all it's beauty. It's that moment, suddenly, everything else seems inconsequential. The evening ski is as soothing as the voice of Sarah Blasko. This is the moment where I take time out.

Just discovered your blog, and whaddyaknow? This is where you've been hiding all the great pictures! I particularly like the evening shots that you take like this one. Thanks for putting these up. Oh, and hang in there, your vacation will be here before you know it! I am envious.

Hi Kat,

Don't worry, I'm getting a little envious myself, I imagine it's snowing in your part of the world. I'd happily trade this constant heat anytime. Thanks for your comments re the pictures. That sunset last night was amazing. That's what the *opposite* horizon looked like!

It just started snowing tonight. Actually, it was more of a sleet on the ride home. Dark, cold, wet...not a good time. I would gladly trade places with you at this time of year. I hate winter. You'd never know I grew up in this climate. We are supposed to get snow all night tonight, and I am going to try riding in to work in the stuff for the first time tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the reply, and enjoy the warmth and sunsets for me! It gets dark around 4:30pm here, so I ride in when it is still dark, and come home in the dark as well. Ah well, only another 5 months of winter to go!
