A friend recently bought a “fixer” not too far from here. With carpentry and construction know how gained in a previous lifetime, helping with the remodel seemed like a good way to make some walk around money. Getting all the tools and materials to the site without the use of an automobile also seemed like an interesting exercise.
Is it eccentric to use a bike for most activities? Does a person follow a straight path to eccentricity? Or has the person always been eccentric, simply following an orbit out into the world…a life…and coming back to the same place?
