Now what?

We're back from Europe and back to our everyday lives, and this would seem to mean there is no longer anything to blog about. But the extraordinary resides in the ordinary. Today, on my usual bike ride to work, I zoomed at full speed through a gigantic cloud of honeybees. In retrospect, they must have been swarming (in the parking lot of a Catholic girls' school?) but at the time all I knew was that I was being smacked by hundreds of tiny bulletlike bodies. Fortunately none of them stung me, as the last time I got stung by a bee while riding my bike, the sting came with a nice staph infection.

I'm going to start carrying my camera again, in hopes that the extraordinary will continue to wait around the corner to be discovered.
