If DX Won't Come to the Art, We'll Bring the Art to DX...

Some folks in Peace Dale have decided to turn the South County bike path into an art gallery.

The display is on a part of the path I rarely ride (being at the bottom of the stupid fish ladder ramp that I hate so), so I hadn't noticed them working on it, but the idea is pretty neat. Maybe I'll venture down the ramp tonight to give it a look. Who knows, this could become a trend. Have a bicycle day at the MFA, or better yet, the Guggenheim.

Death Sheep?

Took a ride past the art exhibit this evening. It was fun. Most of it is abstract, and there was one piece of mosaic/stained glass that I liked quite a bit. The only piece I didn't like is the mural they show in the article. It looked (to me) like one of the school art projects at the elementary school where I use to play volleyball. But then I know nothing about art, so who am I to criticize? At some point I'll bring a camera and post some pictures.

I kept on going to the far end of the path, and since it was late in the day, I was on the look out for death bunnies. Didn't see any. I did, however, come round a bend to see a sheep looking like she might have a go at me. Now this was not exactly farm country, so I was a tad surprised to see it, as well as the flock of goats that was hanging around behind it. They were, in fact, grazing in a cemetary. I just kept on going.

On the way back there was a shepherd with the flock, a young woman who looked to be of middle eastern extraction. I also noticed that there was a small barn and pen across the path from the cemetary, so I guess that's where they live. Huh.

I'm still not feeling a hundred percent. I didn't push it at all tonight until the last couple of miles, when this other cyclist and I started pacing each other. My lower back still hurts, and my upper back hurts when I turn my head to the right. Feh.
