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.

"I want to wake up naked next to you, kissing the curve in your clavicle"

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."
— Lord Byron

My fellow red-headed Emily,

words can not express how much I miss you and how sad I am that we couldn't find a time to get together before you graduated and left. :( I really hope that we can get together despite you not having to come back up to this teeny tiny town.
Lots of stuff that I wish I had your wisdom and insight on.
I'm so glad, as it seems from your lj entries, that you are doing well. I hope to hear about all that's been going on with you since you graduated and how life is in the real adult world!
Love love love,

Fantastic, Em! You discovered places to take me when I come see you in Lansing on (what I hope will be) our weekly excursions. Sounds beautiful. I've also decided to invest in a bike come fall. I need a new way to get around.

"She Walks in Beauty" has always been one of my favorite poems. The imagery is just...breathtaking.
