The photo is from my front porch planter. The flowers are left over from a few weeks back and were getting wilted but instead of throwing them into the trash, I de-stemmed them and tossed them in the planter where they have brought color into my world over and over again. So here's to pushing daisies!

While the clock keeps the pace
Human wheels spin round and round
Help the light to my face...
This land, today, my tears shall taste
And take into its dark embrace
This love, who in my beating heart endures
Assured, by every sun that burns
The dust to which this flesh shall return
It is the ancient, dreaming dust of God.
...rocking the house tonight, listening to iTunes, Last FM and dancing in my chair, ahh but I find myself wanting to go dancing at the club, "Cherry Bomb". Love the oldies, remember when John Mellencamp was Johnny Cougar? I thought he was the bomb! Well, time to go to sleep but , "A'int Even Done with the Night"! Good night, sweet dreams and always remember, "I Saw You First"!

My first ""official" bike ride. My nephew/Greg and I joined others with Bike Barn of Houston on their "Day of the Dead" tour. It was only supposed to be two hours but ended up being more like 4 because of so many riders. We had a police escort along the entire tour, which was nice.
One thing I forgot to bring during the bike ride last night was a camera. We toured some interesting sights and I managed to capture this one on my cameraphone. There were so many bikers there that it was impossible to walk the cemetery and it was dark-very dark--even with our bike lights. I never knew this cemetery exisisted and would love to return--but in daylight!
I really enjoyed the bike ride and thanks to my nephew for pushing me to go. I just bought the bike last week and still getting used to riding on it and wasn't sure if I was ready for such a run that was supposed to last two hours. Last Sunday I rode out to the bayou from my house which was a little over 1/2 an hour and I was tired--especially in the last 10 minutes.
Kudos again to my nephew as he is training for the MS150 next year and was such a cutie in his new biker shorts. I meant to get a picture of him as well. Because of our new interest in biking he and I have developed a closer bond with one another and I look forward to other bike rides together.
