Today will be awesome

Ok, I’ve been told that I over-use the word “awesome”. I’ve looked at my previous posts, and they’re right. I use it a lot. But, it’s with a good reason – because of my brain injury, I swing from very-high, to very-low, thinking of myself. The bad is bad, to the scare me in hindsight. But, I don’t see it, nor do I recognize it when it’s happening. After, when I’m in a better place, I look at myself, and sad. So, when I’m not down, I’m up, and I’m going to “push” myself to do good stuff, mostly on here! I’m working to make the website even more awesome than it is now, by building relationships with “real pros.” I built where this is now, with the awesome pics taken by Dan Ragall.

 

Where am I now? I’m working to make my blog more automated, by auto-publishing posts in the future. I’ve written 4 months now, but it was manual-posting. Today, I found a plugin to do it, and this is the first! I’ve scheduled it to post ahead, and we’ll see if it works!

What I’m going to try to champion

Living in Richmond is pretty good, it’s a small town, everyone knows me by sight (probably something like “that nice disabled guy”), but the bike paths are non-existent for me.  I can’t ride a conventional bicycle.

My ride is about 3′ wide, and about 2′ off the ground.  At the speeds that I ride at, I’m pretty much completely invisible.   The roads that I’d prefer to ride on, because they’re outside town, don’t have many intersections, and are long, but have speed limits of 80 km/h.

I’m fast, but nowhere near that.  I’ve approached the city councillor for the area, asked him for his help, and I’m not sure when, but I’ll be getting going at getting it done!
