Silkworm and I took a very special bike ride yesterday afternoon to hang twenty-five origami dragons in the woods of our favorite park, which was also the location for the first Mission of Magic we posted about on Zauberbear. The trees were so creaky squeaky, it was as if they were trying to bend over out of curiosity to get a look at what we were adorning them with!
As worth it as it was, and as successful as we felt upon returning home, I will be so happy when I finally have my driver's license and we can take a five-minute drive there and back easy peasy. I will always cherish our bike rides and we will never stop venturing on them, but I'd like them to be calm and pleasant, as opposed to eyes-darting-heart-racing chaos that requires thirteen gallons of artificial courage coursing through my veins. I will love not having to be ferociously brave to ride in the shoulder on a 50mph highway and cross the scariest intersections. I will drive myself and Silkworm to the park time and time again and we will bike to the beach at the end to eat breakfast during sunrise or dinner during sunset. It is going to be wonderful.
(My road test is in two days; wish me luck!)
NOTE: We're going back within the next couple days to take the dragons down. I don't want them becoming litter and upsetting anyone; that would defeat the whole purpose!
