Now I”m not saying I’m going ,
and I’m not saying it is even possible,
(Have you ever rode a ten speed! I have and well…Kudos to those who can do it – Alfresco as it were-!) But – you can always depend on Philadelphia the city of Brotherly love, cheese steaks with competing stands, Benjamin Franklin, a gentleman who spent his free time standing in thunder storms flying a kite with a key attached searching for that elusive bolt of lightening, the city where Marcel Duchamp (Artist) deemed it proper to leave his life’s work (check out Philadelphia Museum of Art)… stepping up to the plate of life.
Perhaps it is the residue rebellious nature of the descendents who waved the flag ” Don’t Tread on Me ” during pre- revolutionary days, ( I myself have some of that exploratory /you and who else? attitude running around inside of me from being a relative of Daniel Boone) that sparks declarations/ movements and the like.
Whatever, something is always breaking loose in Philly and people work to make things better never forgetting to add that quirky fun funky element that makes life an unexpected source of serious sassy serendipity!
Oh by the way, that naked bike race is to promote less fuel consumption and has taken place worldwide in over 70 cities! This Sunday in Philly.
