so i walked to work again today, for the first time in a couple weeks (i've been biking). and i noticed that the weird old poster of the man surfing had been changed.
from this, which i took a picture of when i first saw it and has since been the wallpaper on my cell phone:
to this, which i actually really really like and i want in my apartment:
i also saw an abandoned stuffed dino, with a tear in its tail.
to sum up (and by sum up i mean expand my discussion of the walk), i enjoyed the walk this morning. i've found that when i walk, i truly like it. i take my time. and take pictures, clearly. i trust the drivers to notice me and not hit me. i trust the city to welcome me. and i trust myself to walk the streets.
having been biking, i realize that when i bike, i don't trust the drivers. i think the will hit me and assume i'm going to be unpredictable on my bike. i also don't trust other pedestrians to not get in my way. i find that biking rushes me and makes me want to get to my destination and thus off my bike, asap. i don't notice as much. i don't enjoy it. and i feel like a commuter and not a denverite. very interesting if you ask me.
i was pleased by the 2 new changes on my walk. same walk. different things. which is how i feel about Montastic this week. same Montastic. different thoughts.
