"You cannot run away from weakness;
you must some time fight it out or perish;
and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?"

Forest in the Winter

It is not so much for it's beauty,
that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts,
as for that subtle something,
that quality of air that emanation from old trees,
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
-Robert Louis Stevenson

a very "fall" day

I rode my bike down to this park near the Sandy River this morning. Last time I did this I got a flat tire...this time however my rear tire decided to fall completely off and I got a nice punch in the stomach from my handle bars. I'm sure it was a funny thing to see, I even had a good laugh about it for awhile.....but I had to CARRY my bike and the tire up a large hill and all the way home. It was exhausting lol. It was a very pretty day out though, so even though I am sore and have blisters on my hands, I'll look on the bright side and say I love this season!

I can see winter

It's getting cold...I can already see the mountains in Washington, from outside my window, getting covered in snow!
