January 5, 1860 - "A man receives only what he is ready to receive, whether physically or intellectually or morally, as animals conceive at certain seasons their kind only. We hear and apprehend only what we already half know. If there is something which does not concern me, which is out of my line, which by experience or by genius my attention is not drawn to, however novel and remarkable it may be, if it is spoken, we hear it not, if it is written, we read it not, or if we read it, it does not detain us. Every man thus tracks himself through life, in all his hearing and reading and observation and traveling." - The Diary of Henry David Thoreau

(PENINSULA BAY AREA RIDE) I'm planning on doing this ride on Sunday - (1/9) - round trip from Palo Alto to Millbrae - over the foothills, down through Portola Valley and Arastadero Open Space Preserve and over through Stanford back into Palo Alto. 56 miles. Anyone interested in tagging along? or interesting in tagging along for parts of it?

I am still banging away at learning Bruce Hornsby's "The Way It Is" - and while not quite ready for a recital - a couple of you had asked how my piano was going... so here goes nothing!
