Re-writing my life story

Posted on December 8, 2010 at 6:28pm 0 Comments



It was a gorgeous day in Santa Clara yesterday. Stark blue skies with wispy clouds thrown in for romance.

The cyclists who appeared from nowhere ceased to elicit a "watch out, you'll hit him!" shriek of terror; I stopped cursing the motorcyclists; turned a blind eye toward the rickshaws; and didn't care about cars being driven so close alongside ours that I could roll down my window and touch them without having to ever so slightly stretch my arm.
