Things are different in Boulder, Colorado.
There are mountains, for one. (Hills, even.) They draw my gaze upward to the brilliant blue sky, reminding me that life is bigger than me. They remind me that my life is but a wisp, and I don’t want to waste a minute of it. They remind me that God created beauty on purpose, for our pleasure. (Thanks, God!) Mountain living is good for my psyche!
Then there are all the bikers. Every.where. Drivers actually watch out for them and yield to them. I have never seen so many active people all in one city. Boulder was named the fittest city in the United States for 2011, and I can see why. Makes me feel like a total slug while also inspiring me to get out more. Of course, humidity is under 35% here, making mid-80s much more tolerable than what we have at home.
And then there’s this. The Disruptive Thinker Transport. For.Reals. Upon investigation, I found this is the complimentary shuttle for employees of advertising agency Cripsin Porter + Bogusky. These are my people! And the shuttle stops regularly at our hotel. Every time I see it, I wonder if I could take it for the loop, just to say I’ve been on it (and to see if it enhances my Disruptive Thinker abilities). I do believe seeing this every day is God’s providence, because my current writing project is all about the disruptive nature of walking with God. Who knew there was a bus endorsing this sort of thing?! This shuttle will certainly work its way into my project somehow. If I find a way to hop a ride, I’ll let you know.
