February 4 Thursday


Vallejo 7:20 AM

I settle into a warm comfy Honda Insight Hybrid sedan.  Wonderful radio all the way in – it’s Sirius, and there’s a great discussion about the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’  issue on Oprah Radio.  The sky is gray with clouds gathering for the predicted afternoon/evening storm.  Yellow mustard is beginning to bloom along the freeway and the pink and white blossoms of the wild plum trees have started opening up all over the landscape.  The gray palette of winter is slowing moving toward spring.

Traffic is heavy, but moving, and it’s a great day to be in the carpool lane.
