We had the opportunity to bike Lake Shore Drive on Sunday morning of Memorial Day weekend - as in, bike in the middle of the road, both northbound (to Bryn Mawr) and southbound (turning around at the Museum of Science and Industry).
Yes, it was a while ago, but I'm behind on all-things-life, and I just want to capture this so I don't ever forget it. Being with two of my best life friends, Shawn and Kate, and mostly just being on my own as I cruised the drive, with the secure knowledge that, while we focused on riding more than visiting, they mostly were ahead or behind me. It was an exhilarating way to spend a Sunday morning.
I kept thinking of Einstein, who, they say, was riding a bike when he came up with e = mc².
Nothing that profound came to me on my bike that morning. Just the usual: It's great to be here.
