I don’t know about you, but I thought I was pretty brave until I read Bicycling with Butterflies by Sara Dykman, our One Book, One City book choice this year. Ms. Dykman’s idea for her over 10,000-mile bike ride following the migratory trek of the monarch butterfly sounded daunting, and seemed impossible to this reader. Nevertheless, the author set her goal, planned for it, and then went out there and accomplished it. Talk about realizing your dreams!
I’m inspired -not to embark upon quite such a bike ride- but to instead appreciate that we humans can really get things done when we set out to do so. Like Ms. Dykman, we are bound to make some ‘wrong turns’ along the way, but if we persevere, we can and will succeed.
I’m eager to hear more about her ride among the beautiful Monarchs and will be lucky enough to do so when the author will be available at our virtual Q&A on Monday, August 2 at 6pm. Aren’t you? Register here and I sure hope to ‘see’ you there!
