Mt. Cadillac




Arcadia National Park, Maine
June

It rained this morning. I was depressed, but that ended with the
rain. The clouds rolled away, and the sun came out. Hold on, the
mosquitoes are really hungry.

There, that’s much better. I had to put up my tent. I pity the
animals out there. The mosquitoes are in a feeding frenzy heat. Now
where was I; oh, yeah—when I finally left the campground it was a nice
72 degrees (soon to become 80) and the sun was shining. I was so glad
to be riding my bicycle; it felt like I was sailing down the highway.

I took the cutoff up to Mt. Cadillac, a 1500-foot high mountain. On
the way there, I ran into Donna and Peggy. They were riding bicycles,
too. Donna was having problems with her derailleur, so I helped her
out as much as I could (not much). After that, the three of us rode
together to the summit. The view was super. On the east and south were
the ocean, islands, and inlets. On the north and west were lakes and
forest. The girls and I enjoyed the view and the sun. We ate our lunch
together. Peggy even offered me her place to crash for the evening.

About bwinwnbwi

About me: Marvin Gaye’s song, "What’s Going On" was playing on the jukebox when I went up to the counter and bought another cup of coffee. When I got back, the painting on the wall next to where I was sitting jumped out at me, the same way it had done many times before. On it was written a diatribe on creativity. It was the quote at the bottom, though, that brought me back to this seat time after time. The quote had to do with infinity; it went something like this: Think of yourself as being in that place where infinity comes together in a point; where the infinite past and the infinite future meet, where you are at right now. The quote was attributed to Hermann Hesse, but I didn’t remember reading it in any of the books that I had read by him, so I went out and bought Hesse’s last novel, Magister Ludi. I haven’t found the quote yet, but I haven't tired of looking for it either.

    I’m still wondering how you manage to post for wordpress daily though on the road with a tent 🙂

      I’m sorry, I should have mentioned that in one of my bike panniers I carried my own personal time traveler–it works wonders–it’s the only way I get my posts in on time. Thanks for the chuckle! Take care.
