look out below!

today i took my first ride on the light rail.
it was great, i look forward to being a frequent 
rider. while waiting at the tempe transportation
station, several paragliders sailed high overhead. 
i believe they launched from nearby "A" mountain. 
they are no doubt practicing
landing in sun devil stadium (directly below
this glider), where the minnesota golden
gophers will go against the kansas jayhawks for
tomorrow afternoon's insight bowl.

So glad you got your first ride. I actually took the light rail to dinner last night. It was great. I'm hoping over the weekend to take it end to end. The crowds should be lighter since we start paying tomorrow.

Portland Oregon Daily Photo sends you heartfelt wishes for the new year. May your 2009 be filled with good health, riches of the mind and heart, loved ones returning home, an increased respect for our fragile planet, and the cessation of wars across the Earth.

Mass transit in the form of light rail, buses, or streetcars is splendid.
