Keith Jarrett: The Koln Concert and What it says about Creativity

Life is about listening.   Sometimes what life is saying comes at you in in strange ways.   Now stay with me here.

Here's my testament to why I love ABQ.

I live in the student ghetto...a block away from the university. While my house faces south on Gold Street, my garage faces west on University (a busy street). So, every time we park our bikes in the garage, we open and shut the garage.

We rarely forget, but today, either we forgot or it didn't shut completely and bounced back up (something blocking?) and we didn't notice.

So we had some errands to run (rented a ZipCar) drove around…

So was playing hooky from work and napping with my door open.   Slowly, as if almost in a dream, I heard 2 people yelling at each other.

I got up and looked out, and it's a biker and some body in a car.

I made out this exchange.  "What am I supposed to do?  There aren't any bike lanes..."

Hi Don, I finally got around to posting that blog about getting rid of our vehicle. I figured what better day than "Dump the Pump" day! I posted it here and on Facebook. Thanks for the inspiration! :) I also linked to your profile here and your Carless blog.
