Ride, Ride, Work, Movie

The life of a freelance marketing consultant means the demands on my time tend to ebb and flow.

Today was all flow. Of course a lot of it is self-imposed but, in true Leo fashion, I’m pretty much not willing to give up one single solitary thing.

Alarm goes off at 6am. Cook the oats, make the latte, pack the cycling food. Drive to Half Moon Bay.

Bike hard for one hour. Finally feeling stronger after a weak Sunday and three days off.

Toss the bike in the car and bust a move over to the barn. Drag the horse out of pasture. He’s not happy with me since he *just* got into the pasture!

Quick brush down, tack up and in the arena in record time. A focused and high quality walk, trot, canter 20 minute session. Throw the horse back into the pasture. He doesn’t even look back.

Jump in the car and hustle back to San Francisco. Grab a burrito to go and inhale it, jump in the shower and beg Bert for a ride to BART.

Downtown at 1pm just in time to start my project with Salesforce. Whew!

Now I’m off to catch the bus to see a documentary film with Bert at the Vogue Theater. The film is “I Knew it Was You: Rediscovering John Cazale” and they’re showing it with “Dog Day Afternoon” – a film for which he is well known.

Will let you tomorrow how it was!

p.s. I did take a few minutes with Now Voyager to be zen. Horses have that effect on people. Well, at least on me.



  1. Oh man, talk about flow… you were on the go go go all day, at least you had time for burritos… those make everything better…

    AND horses 🙂

  2. Speaking of horses and the zen effect, have you had any time to peruse the book I gave you on that subject? If you have, what do you think? Great to see you yesterday. You are looking so beautiful and fit!
    Love you!


  3. […] and Gelato The documentary about the short life of John Cazale that was saw last week was good. Not great but definitely worth checking out if you have HBO. It […]

  4. Whew….that’s stretching the day and making the most of every hour. You sound energized though and that’s a wonderful feeling!
