A ride in the rain...

Today I took the same way I normally take, for the return ride home. The only difference, is that today it was raining when Baby and I left the warm comfort of the indoor garage at work. Still... the rain was soft, the temperature in the high teens and the traffic, although dense, felt somewhat unhurried. All in all, I mused as I rode along the Parkway, this was a rather enjoyable ride home. Sure, it was a little damp and the bike would need a good wash tomorrow, but still... it was nice to just tool along, surrounded by the soft greenery, a light mist on my face. Some of the greatest pleasures in life, are those little unexpected ones, which demand only a small sense of adventure as their price of admission.
