One Last Note from Mary

Wed. morning, Sept 24 started just like everyday on the bike trip except for one thing...after Cal and Ron had their morning coffee and peddled off for another day of biking, I packed up the camper for the last time and drove home.

And that was the end of the Bike Trip for me.

I had nothing much to show for the past summer except a few rocks that I unceremoniously dumped with all my other rocks. I feared the mountain of mail waiting. My cats had peed in the corner of the living room, and I felt guilty about going back to work and facing the people I abandoned all summer.

My husband is gray and tan and skinny.

Yet It is right to be home now. I was satisfied that"the World is all that it should be." This summer is a gift with many layers that I am still unpacking. Cal and I still look at each other and say with wonder..."We did it!"

There is one last thing that I want to tell you...I wore one pair of black flipflops -which was as barefoot as I could safely get, the whole way across the United States.

And I love you.
