My first 20 mile round trip trek took me along Scenic 98 which runs by the Gulf and all the beaches. Seasoned cyclists may scoff at my starting sojourns (bear with me, I'm in an alliteration mood) but I'm pretty proud of my progress. At 60, I'm working my way up and hope to someday join one of those biking tour vacations, during which the group cycles 35+ miles a day (forget the 60, I'll never get there!)

I was born a reader. My first real "grown-up" book came from a school book fair when I was in the fourth grade -- Little Women. I still have it, 58 years later. As I became acquainted with the March girls, I came to identify with one more than the others. It certainly wasn't shy, timid Beth or proper Meg. Amy's love of art resonated with me, but at last, because she loved literature and writing and because of her independent nature -- although often awkward and outspoken -- it was decidedly Jo.
