Divisadero at Fell 17:52
Temperature: 54°
Tuesday sky: dark gray
As my brain was shooting darts at popping floating bubbles surrounding the top of my head, I found myself walking across Fell street when the moon-walking sign at the pedestrian light turned green. From a glance, I get a great smile from a man and his bicycle on the bike lane to my right, where all the car lights are just blinding my thoughts as well. He says hello and a lovely greeting.
I smiled back. The street, one of the intersections I consider the most dangerous around the city for pedestrians and bicycles, suddenly gains a human sense. A community in flow.
That man made my day (well, evening)
Waiting for the bus.


  1. That was me last Tuesday. I'm glad I made your evening.

    I meant to add a comment long ago- your post "Frenchie Superstar" got me riding more - granted, I'm not as stylish- neon-yellow isn't flattering, but I make due.

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. Please tell more about that stunning bag!!!

  3. Red cap toe boots! Details?? Thanks!

  4. One more great reason to smile and wave from your bicycle--you never know when you might make someone's day. :) -JR

  5. I know exactly what you mean--I still remember a total stranger who helped me for a moment with my suitcase on the busiest street in NYC! So wonderful!
