I tried to meditate today but couldn't get my mind as flat and free as the sky was all day.
I spent two hours pushing hard on the trainer. It's amazing how the miles on the bike mount up, and even though you  are still here you might have been half way across the continent by now, if things were different.
[Image caption] April 11, 2012 1:10 p. All windows! I ran about looking at ll views. It is cloudless. A bit lighter than this dried, and of course minus the inadvertent finger smudge on the left.
The journal is a 7 x 10 inch handmade journal containing Nideggen paper. The pen used is a Preppy fountain pen. The sky is rendered with gouache.
