Ying and Yang

I need to take a camera with me when I ride. Sometimes you see something that just captures you. Sometimes it's the juxtaposition of the things you see.

Like, today, for example, as I turned off the street that crosses the lake and rounded the corner to run parallel to the lake, I saw a view of it, I've never noticed before, which is saying a lot since I've lived here on and off for almost 40 years. Green trees surrounding shimmering water, it looked so inviting I wanted to jump in. Of course, living here for almost those 40 years, I knew better than that (it's really kind of a gross black-bottom lake and besides, I'm not a lake swimmer).

Then of course, further down the road, I saw the antithesis of that beautiful scene, the dead squirrel, gnawed open and teeming with black flies. Gross. Almost rode through it but swerved just in time. Phrew!
