Bicycle, bicycle, bicycle

You say coke I say caine
You say John I say Wayne
Hot dog I say cool it man
I don’t wanna be the President of America
You say smile I say cheese
Cartier I say please….’cause all I want to do is ride my bicycle, bicycle, bicycle.  Queen


A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.
Gloria Steinem


Get a bicycle.  You will not regret it if you live.  Mark Twain


Life is like riding a bicycle: you don’t fall off unless you stop pedaling.
Claude Pepper


The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets.  Christopher Morley


Consider a man riding a bicycle.  Whoever he is, we can say three things about him.  We know he got on the bicycle and started to move.  We know that at some point he will stop and get off.  Most important of all, we know that if at any point between the beginning and the end of his journey he stops moving and does not get off the bicycle he will fall off it.  That is a metaphor for the journey through life of any living thing, and I think of any society of living things.  William Golding

The Apple Tree

Chicago has been absolutely beautiful this week – sunny and mid-60’s in March; it’s truly like a dream.  Tuesday evening I was slowwwwllly walking from work to a relaxed weekday date-night with the boyfriend when I came across a tree with dozens of paper squares hanging from the branches by tangled colored yarn.  Each square had a different fruit image carefully drawn on the front.  Cute in and of itself, each fruit had a unique and positive message scrawled on the back.   Uplifting and sweet, it made a wonderful week that much better! 



By Boe



Probably a very late-comer to the party, I first found by boe on Haute Look.  The self proclaimed “cult” jewelry line has been around since 2000, with the brain behind the design, Annika Inez, opening shop in Manhattan.  Her attention to detail and playful mix of materials makes the line adored by celebrities, showcased in Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit edition and coveted by the girl next door.  Fortunately for all, by boe has expanded from it’s NYC location and is available through their online portal of goodness,
