Darton Trail Run on 20140927

I ran for the first time in a long time. I love running on trails. Saturday was a nice cool overcast day.  there was a High School cross country meet and several schools were running on the trails.  I avoided the finish line area near the soccer fields.  I usually run on the hospice Center trail and keep on the back side trails.  All of my artificial vascular arterial parts worked fine.

Sylvia's blank garden canvas is ready for plantings

Image
Sylvia's dream garden is finally taking shape.  You may not know if from the video, but the clearing of the beetle infested trees clears the way for real preparation for installing the irrigation system.  Getting the trees removed means that no other heavy equipment will be in areas were plant beds will be located.


I am getting excited about the landscaping plans that we have discussed for several years.  When I first met Sylvia, I did not know squat about plants of landscaping.  Yeah I know how to water and cut grass and I loved bulb flowers, but that was about it.  Now after listening to her explain to me about the soil web and plant relationships I am finally getting inspired to build a garden around my home.








Broad Street Bridge construction

Image
On 9/18/2014 I walked across the flint River Bridge to go to lunch.  I have not taken a picture of the construction for a while since I am not bike commuting.  Google has enhanced this photo and I really like it.
Here are the other photos.








Vascular Maze

Image
I started drawing this drawing shortly after being hit by a Honda Pilot while riding my bike to work.  The incident happened on March 17, 2014.  I stopped work on it because like all of my drawings, I did not like the way it was turning out.  I was not inspired to draw on it until summer.

Here is the finished Drawing.


Below are photos showing the evolution of the drawing.
