What does it for you?

The sun was high in the noon sky. The air was still crisp. I pulled the Triumph over to a vacant building in Hygiene,Colorado. After I got off the scrambler and took the gloves, glasses and helmet off, I sat down on an old wooden bench. After about 15 minutes of watching a few cars […]

The frozen pony

The song has been on my iPhone for a long time. I think I first heard it in the 60s. I didn’t hear it though as a stand alone song. I remember hearing it as I watched the movie…The Strawberry Statement. We were in Cape Cod. It was at the time between law school and […]
