Sanity Snippet: Biking & ‘Reading’–11/29/21

As of October 24, 2021, Sanity Snippets are snapshots of my daily life, those things I’m doing—such as reading, writing, biking, photographing, and gardening—to maintain sanity while living in the most regressive state imaginable. Alabama.

Today, 11.20 miles. For sure, that’s not me doing that stunt in the above photo. I’m 67 and want to stay in one piece. Which makes me thankful after today’s near accident while passing Sardis High School. Kids with cars at 3:00 p.m.–MUST CAREFULLY WATCH.

Trying a new App: Ride with GPS

Here’s a seven-minute video from today’s ride. No, I’m not talking to myself. I’m talking with my truck-driving son. Cannot wait until I have a good camera and bike mount.

I spend most of my biking time listening to a book. Today, I continued with The Hunger Games by Susan Collins.

Read the abstract, and if it suits your fancy, grab a copy and start reading or listening.

Abstract of The Hunger Games from Amazon

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before-and survival, for her, is second nature. Still, if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
