An anonymous reader of this blog and my previous blog has does something very nice for me. This reader did this through my Local Bike Shop. I believe this happened over a month ago. I only found out about it yesterday from the shop owner when I stopped by the shop. I wanted to acknowledge this person and let them know how moved I was by their act of kindness. Writing a blog doesn’t always have the greatest feedback to help make a person aware if they are touching other people or not. As an introvert, I always saw my blogs as my way of doing bicycling advocacy. It’s very difficult for me to reach people in person, or lobby public officials or attend community meetings. So I do my advocacy on my blog by using it to set an example of what the possibilities are for cycling in a city like Duluth, or anywhere they may live. Often I never know if I’ve reached anyone.
An anonymous gift is one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. It makes all my efforts worthwhile. Thank you!
