Today I finally got up enough guts to ride my bike* to the train station (five miles on busy roads). It was probably the best decision I've made in a little while. It was both exhilarating and quieting. My day has been significantly improved from days gone by. I think I will make this a habit. I don't know why I was so scared.
I also recently realized that I like Bob Dylan most when he is trying to sound like Woody Guthrie. I feel like a blasphemer.
*It's actually my mom's bike and if it gets stolen I'm one dead unicorn.
