Feels good to start painting again. Feels good to start running again. Feels good to start riding again. Mind is in a much happier place than a month ago, mired in Holiday bustle. A little fresh air and hike alone with my lady friend (+ puppy) helped cure some cabin fevers. I want it even more.

Been working on a couple new pieces for a cool show coming up this Friday (1/17) at Velo+. Here's a sneekypeek at the first of a new series I'm excited about working on. Swing by the shop between 6-10pm and say hi. Free beers. Coffee. Art. Bikes. Like some fantastically delicious bicycle paella. Yum... DETAILS HERE FOR FB USERS

Seems like days off from work usually go like this: much planned / little accomplished. Mostly because every time I take a vacation day off work a kid ends up being sick or there's some crises with the house. Today was a secret carryover day that my boss allowed me to use because I was unable to take all my 2013 calendar year days. Dog wakes up at 4am, pees poops and wants to play. I'm wired and take a while to force myself back to sleep before my wife needs to get up for her work. Kid #2 comes up into the room upset stomach fever throws up and crawls into bed. Kid #1 yells from downstairs 30min later with crusty eyes and thinks it's the pink eye - then she gets upset belly and the dog wakes back up at 5:50 with all the commotion and wants to eat. Here we go again... But amazingly, after a little coffee, a morning walk for the pup at -9°F wind chill and a bright bluebird sky made it all better. Even went to the DMV and the reception lady (the line before the line) said "Everything looks perfect - have a great day". Ran a few errands at the bank, pet store, Bike Stop and by the time I arrived home the kids were feeling better, I took a nice walk (again) with the pup but this time accompanied by a pretty lady. Wrapped up the walk and went for an hour bike ride with a great friend. Sometimes the best days start out shitty, so hang in there - it always gets better.
