Summer Solstice

Yesterday, to celebrate the first day of summer, we rode out to the Lutheran Seminary, and joined up with two friends also on bikes. It was a sultry, steamy evening, with every green and living thing reaching for the sky. We had to do some ill-fated off-roading, and the aroma of the plants crushed under foot and tire was intoxicating. I had hoped that we could travel down a path toward RPC that has beautiful vistas, but we were thwarted by some construction being done on one of our city's many bridges. Instead, we rode to a luscious garden located within our city's research park, plopped down in cedar chairs in a wood pavilion lit by mission-style lamps, and gazed over the pond while sipping rosehip tea and eating crepes. We stayed until 10:30 p.m., and it was still light enough to make our way home down the path. Welcome, summer!

Instant Expert

I have created blogs before, and I have a few favourites that I've been reading on and off for a few years, but I am not what you'd call a blogging expert. However, I am a public librarian, which seems to mean I get to become an instant expert on nearly every topic imaginable at least 50 times per day. At this moment, I am working on becoming a blogging expert. I am hoping to achieve this lofty status within a few weeks, as a colleague and I will be teaching a blogging class to the public in not too long. I understand the principles, the logic, and the act itself. Most importantly, I know where to find the answer.
