singlespeed

In cities, a single speed is the preferred type of bicycle by commuters due to its lightness and simplicity. It is so bare bones that it doesn’t even have brakes or cables. There are no derailleurs. Basically, that means you’re feet are the drive train, the gears AND the break. So get ready to pedal hard when you have to climb that steep hill because you can’t downshift to a low gear ratio. And then, how do you go down the other side of the hill? Very carefully, I would say.

The print of my drawing is available at my store. Feel free to check it out :)

Here, in the Northeast, the leaves are starting to change. Hear the subtle crunching as you walk outside. Gracefully, they float down from the heavens like orange and yellow snowflakes. Although the air is crisp, the colors will soon illuminate the vista with brilliant warmth.

Do you look at the different shapes and try to identify what tree they are from? What tree is common in your area?

I made four watercolors, and then turned them into postcards. Feel free to check them out at my store.

Although the summer warmth is no more and the crowds of sun worshipers have disappeared, the Light still goes on.

What happened on the day when the big one hit the earth millions of years ago? Most likely, life was going on as normal. And then, in an instant, a meteor impacted the Earth so hard that it affected the entire atmosphere, creating a fiery, ash laden sky. Thus wiping out all of the giants.

This coming Monday the 21st, mid-day, there will be another cosmic event – the Solar Eclipse. Eager spectators, along a certain path in the United States, will view it because it is so rare. The last time it happened in the US was in 1979. The next solar eclipse won’t happen until 2024. It won’t be an extinction level event, but it is dangerous to view it with the naked eye, so please be careful and use proper viewing gear when you look up.
