Rewards of an Alternate Route

More

In an earlier post on how to cope with uncertain times and changes, I noted that sometimes, alternate routes or destinations can turn out to be way better than the original goal or place you expected or set out to reach. 


Case in point: this piece by Micah Toub in the Globe and Mail about attempting to navigate Los Angeles by bicycle, instead of by car. Following the advice of urban bicycling experts who've learned how to navigate safely around LA's legendary car traffic--and traffic jams---he ends up exploring back roads he normally wouldn't travel ... and finding treasures and colors in the city he never noticed before. Even if it takes him a little bit longer to get from point "A" to point "B." Worth a look.
