the long way home
On most days my commute has a purpose; to get as efficiently and quickly from point A to B. But every once in a while, I feel less rushed and I can take my time and really enjoy the benefits of traveling by bike. Last Friday was one of those days – I put in my time on campus, met a friend for coffee, and then was free to meander on home in a leisurely manner because it was officially the weekend. No rush, no hurry.
In fact, I could even take a little detour to take some pictures and to collect some wildflowers from a field near my house. And voilà – from the bike basket to the kitchen table…
Not a bad way to start the weekend. Do you ever take the long way home? What tempts you away from your route when you get the chance to stray?
