Friday’s Ride: Short Day’s Journey To Night

Yep, contrary to as things may seem I’m not just sitting in a corner ratzafratzin’ over the twists and turns the renovation is taking. In fact, among the motions I’m going through I’m still doing those timelapsifications of my to/from bike commutes. Usually though,  I’ll only post something about them if there’s something that takes them out of the ordinary.

In this one from Friday’s ride home there’s nothing really remarkable, but I did like how in the hour and change it took me to get from Westchester just prior to sunset to Silver Lake, the day slips almost imperceptibly to night as I crank it mostly eastward along Jefferson Boulevard and northward along Vermont Avenue.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
