I've never done a blog post from a starting corral but at least I can pass a little time while I'm standing here. I could not decide whether to wear my jacket or not--I finally decided I should because I would die freezing while I was waiting. (Someday I'll learn to bring a throwaway shirt!) And brrr, the wind is cold anyway. Ten more minutes till Bloomsday's start, which means 15-20 minutes for me in the yellow bib group. I'm all nerves! Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
But now my task is smoothly done, I can fly, or I can run Quickly to the green earth’s end, . . . And from thence can soar as soon To the corners of the moon. Mortals that would follow me, Love virtue, she alone is free. John Milton
Avid antique shopper and garden lover, runner, walker, skier, and yoga & pilates devotee. Frequent traveller to England. Voracious reader of literary fiction, travel memoirs, self-help books, mysteries, garden & decorating books, and a wide variety of magazines (Runner's World, Oprah, Prevention, More, Glamour, as well as stacks of gossip mags while at the Y). I also have a weakness for contemporary Brit-lit (Bridget Jones and sistren) and sweeping English sagas (e.g. Rosamunde Pilcher novels). English major in my former life. I love sweet peas, David Austin English roses, old houses, antique silver, china and glassware, the Cotswolds, chocolate, scones with jam & clotted cream, and Jane Austen novels. When I grow up (or in my next life) I would like to own a tea room and antiques shop, but for now I just visit as many as I can.
