Didn’t make it as far as planned. Didn’t really plan either. As if you were to start to shrug, then decided to complete the shrug, but forgot what the shrug was for. Today was not about destination, but rather a detour until darkness.

Part of the bigger joy is in the architecture of living. Neighborhoods lean and sway towards and from affluence and most residences comply with the norm. But there’s always some outliers. Occasionally astonishing (e.g. click here) specimens, straight out of film sets or Seussical ramblings. Often just eyebrow raising. A pensive, if quick, “hmm, whattyaknow.”

In the end I ended up atop a familiar hill. Discovered years ago on a suburban bike ride, rediscovered on perhaps a detour or a stroll with a friend. Descended (tromped, really) into the hinterlands, picked up seemingly a dozen pounds of Trader Joe’s wine, and employed the T for my return.

What’s Obama do tomorrow?
