Books bombarded his shoulders, his arms, his upturned face. A book alighted, almost obediently, like a white pigeon, in his hands, wings fluttering. In the dim, wavering light, a page hung open and it was like a snowy feather, the words delicately painted thereon. In all the rush and fervor, Montag had only an instant to read a line, but it blazed in his mind for the next minute as if stamped there with fiery steel.
Bradbury, Farenheit 451
Biked the Bibliobicicleta across the city and back on Sunday. We biked “far”, from the Panhandle to the Parque Unidos Ninos in the Mission. The Bibliobicicleta fared well, and looks forward to biking longer voyages in the future, where to next?
We gave out 16 books at the Free Farm Stand, where patrons gathered things necessary to build a strong mind and body.
I am filled with the deepest gratitude for all of our backers, supporters, friends and family who have ever supported this crazy weird project and especially to the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition for their work on bike lanes, the Wiggle, and to Jay Simpson for his active support and guidance. He accompanied the ride and introduced us to the good people at the Free Farm Stand.
It’s Banned Books Week, which means all of you should definitely take the time to log off this book and read a real one. Thank you for visiting!
