This weekend we found new ways to keep travel to the fair simple, easy, and relaxing.  By making full use out of the WalknTalk mobile, we were able to bring everything to the Ravenswood ArtWalk by bike.  In fact, as you've seen the bike is the display table. Realizing that I could make the mode of transport into the display was really satisfying.  Finding simple solutions to complex fears seems to be a recurring theme in all our lives.  At first I was worried about how we could effectively wheel suitcases full of notebooks, ride bikes, and get to the fair still feeling energized.  Of course it wasn't probable; too many variables.  Wanting to give the WalknTalk team a rest, I said let's find a way to simplify.  I called a friend, and he suggested I think in terms of sustainability.  "How can you make it there, simply, easily, while actually still enjoying the ride?" "Hmmm," I said, "a challenge!"  So I filled my hiking backpack with notebooks and reminisced about weeks hiking in Patagonia, dreaming about what I'm doing now.  It was beautiful... 

  Sometimes the answer is just sitting there waiting for our acceptance.  We all know what it is we need, and when we reach out we find it.  How uncanny!  After all, it takes a new mindset to fix what the old mindset created. I believe Einstein said that.  The genius can't be too far off =)
