Poetry in Motion
I found this purple Schwinn tandem bicycle parked in front of JD Redhouse, fully outfitted with coordinating streamers and handy wire baskets. I'm still experiencing bike envy, for mine has not yet arrived.
The building reflected in the window, from across the street, is the Bank of Willits. I haven't heard any dire warnings about the state of its health, and it was never a free-wheeling savings and loan, but even solid local commercial banks will suffer if money isn't moving. I hope their emphasis on local investments helps them.
Meanwhile, prudent investors will spend some capital on human-powered capability expansion, like bikes, so that when the oil stops moving, and the money stops moving, the people can keep moving. Have I mentioned that mine will be pink? That's almost as good as deep purple.
