The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #287: Coexist
One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations,
their work and leisure activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.
It's a bike ride.
Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.
It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
On the sixth year of this bike ride, you might expect:
- more inconvenient passageways
- more full moon picnics
- perhaps more "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- certainly more amateurish enthusiasm
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- dance parties
- imaginary histories
- scavenging for fun and sustenance
- more geocaching
- more oblique strategies
- more Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties
- A medium pace (maybe not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- We're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light.
- Maybe some distance;maybe some hills
- Victory donuts!
We hear that it is Ash Wednesday, or at the very least that it is a Wednesday of ash-like substances falling
from the sky. We also hear that it is New Year's Eve - end of the Year of the Horse, beginning of the Year of
the Ram, and occasion for much celebration. So there is no shortage of observances you could be making
tonight, whether it involves Ashes, a Ram, or something else entirely. If you are the type that really takes your
Coexist bumper sticker to heart, then perhaps you will even build an ash ram in the ashram and get the best of
all worlds? Have at it, we say! Live and let live.
We, as usual, will mostly just be observing the things that come our way as we ride our bikes. And if we do
happen to encounter some ashes or some rams (or even some ashrams), so much the better.
