cruising down center

last week, i rode penelope to the bike shop
for some free handlebar tightening. 
instead of pedaling back to the initiative, 
{i call my complex 'the dharma initiative' because of how eerily similar they are}
i decided to go for a ride downtown.
it was magical.
the sun was shining,
the streets were bustling
and bright eyes was the soundtrack.
i felt like i was on the set of a fifties movie.
i rode to the library and picked up some books.
i am slowly falling in love with jack kerouac
as i read on the road and it makes me yearn for adventure.
i want to visit the unknown and meet strangers
who enter my life for a brief moment
and change it forever.

P.S. I wish I lived in the dharma initiative. I have a dharma initiative sticker on my work computer.

This thought sounds amazing, I recently went to the library to find some good reads. I hadn't been for awhile.
