JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 09.19.20

Fall is setting in here a few days early. It was downright chilly on a couple of these mornings. Like today.

I didn’t spin many miles on the bike –  too much busy family stuff going on as everyone is getting back into the back-to-school mode.

My 7:30 am to 8:30 am “me time” that was built up since last May seems to be spiraling down the drain.

I get it, nothing stays the same. But I was missing that time a little this week.

During that “me time”, I’d  put my headphones on, and start to pedal. Paved track, gravel track. I’d watch the morning light develop and dance. I I listen to my music.

My mind wanders and opens.

I think about photo projects I could do maybe do. Most never come to fruition.

I look around. I stop and take some photos.

I think about what I want to have for breakfast when I get back.

I’d maybe be out on a gravel travel and remember I had Zoom call in 10 minutes. Except I’m 20 minutes from home.

Ah well.

I’ll figure it out. The schedule will settle and I’ll figure out when I can get back to it.

Fall rides will be fun.

I hope.

But they won’t beat those humid summer mornings under the Jersey sun.

That was my time.


What I Watched This Week: The Wolverine. Really visually interesting. Also, made me what to go back to Japan.

“The best of my career was in my 40s and 50s. I love photography a lot more now than I probably did [when I was young]. You get wisdom, knowledge, understanding of light.” ~ Walter Iooss, Jr, who had a birthday this week (read the Whalebone article about him)

  1. Be careful with your “me time” as you putting in miles on the bike or shoes. With the later dawns, drivers may not be keeping as careful a watch for anything that is not another car or truck in the early light.

    • Thanks, David. Very fair point. Since the time change hasn’t taken effect yet, it’s pretty bright out when I go. But that said time change may move my bike time around anyway. I don’t want to be riding in the dark, no matter how much I like it.
