Today I discovered Lansing.
I biked from Saginaw and Abbott down to Harrison, then through the quaint historic neighborhoods to Michigan Avenue. There was a little old couple outside their house, obviously both avid gardeners. They were old and spunky and had made their house a flora paradise.
Then I biked down Michigan to the Capitol building, passing many cute little cafes and shops that I never knew existed. From there, I met up with a friend and biked the river trail from the Impression 5 museum all the way to MSU's campus, specifically down by the river where Andrew and I fed the ducks the Friday before he left on his trip.
Then we biked back to Impression 5 museum, discussing what could be done with the old Board of Water and Light building across from the Radisson Hotel on Michigan and Grand. On my ride back down Michigan, I cut up through the parking lot to the east behind Frandor, and saw an older woman walking through a big open meadow, on a path only apparent because of frequent use. Then I discovered quite possibly the best secret sledding hill in all of Lansing/EL.
Now that I'm home and have showered/eaten lunch, it's a chill day, full of reading and writing and missing my love.

Thank you Joe for helping me discover this gem:
"She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes."
