A Little Lonely

Shit! I need to make a quick meal so I have time to ride bikes! Ok Trader Joe, you’re up to bat. Mmmmmmm. I had this in the freezer forever bc I thought it would suck but its actually awesome, it turns out.

I rode from the south loop up to the @DearbornBikeLane and stopped at The Goodman Theater for a moment where I snapped a picture.

I was able to lurk on this Bianchi long enough to snap a pic. I am the bike creeper today! Raaaaaaarrr!

My bicycle told me she didn’t like all that salt but then she whispered in my ear about how she would do it again anytime. It gave me a boner.

“Character is just an invention…. It is the self-fulfilling prophecy that guides our lives… and the longer we live with it the more boxed in we are by the rapidly diminishing variedness of our imagined selves. What we can’t ever accept is that we might never know who we are.” -Kamila Shamsie, Broken Verses

“In order to be able to help people one must first learn to help oneself. A great number of people become absorbed in thoughts and feelings about helping others simply out of laziness. They are too lazy to work on themselves; and at the same time it is very pleasant for them to think that they are able to help others. This is being false and insincere with oneself. If a man looks at himself as he really is, he will not begin to think of helping other people: he will be ashamed to think about it. Love of mankind, altruism, are all very fine words, but they only have meaning when a man is able, of his own choice and of his own decision, to love or not to love, to be an altruist or an egoist. Then his choice has a value. But if there is no choice at all, if he cannot be different, if he is only such as chance has made or is making him, an altruist today, an egoist tomorrow, again an altruist the day after tomorrow, then there is no value in it whatever. In order to help others one must first learn to be an egoist, a conscious egoist. Only a conscious egoist can help people. Such as we are we can do nothing.” -G. I. Gurdjieff

    I love the Dearborn Bike Lane. I travel on it often and see all kinds of people hustling and bustling about.
