Dare boldly

A blog by Louise Gallagher

Kicking back makes a difference



It is Sunday– the day for a guest blog but I have left my laptop at home and am using my iPad — which means, I don’t have my files. It seemed like a good idea at the time — to not carry my laptop, and it still is because it’s so light and versatile and today I have my keyboard with me at Starbucks — so typing is easier. but, some logistics escape me and the Guest Blog today was one of them.

So… instead of a guest blog, a couple of photos from our bike ride yesterday. It was glorious. Riding in the wind across the Golden Gate Bridge. Up the hill to the top of the Marin County headlands, flying down with the wind, into Sausalito, lunch at a table overlooking the bay and the ride back across the bridge to Fisherman’s Wharf where we’d rented the bikes six hours earlier.

A blissful, relaxing and enchanting day. Sunshine. Exercise. Great company. Ocean breezes. Sailboats scuttling across the bay and a view flowing into tomorrow. Oh, and did I mention… we rented electric bikes? Wicked awesome!


Electric bikes are perfect. Don’t know why I don’t have one at home. What a perfect way to get around. Manual power unless you need a boost up a hill. How perfect is that?

And, wouldn’t you know it, technology once again defies me — I can’t add photos from my ipad. I did remember to bring the plug-in to upload them off the camera, but I don’t know how to get them into my blog. 🙂

It will have to wait until I get home.

In the interim. C.C. and I are off to watch the Gay Pride Parade this morning and then, we pick up our convertible rental car and zoom off to Wine Country for 3 nights.

Kicking back, relaxing, spending time together…. it all makes a difference.

Blessings on a fabulous day where ever you are in the world. May you see the rainbows peeking out from behind grey clouds, the sunshine streaming in your heart and the joy of knowing you are surrounded by a world of magnificent people.

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

  1. Enjoy relaxing – you deserve it oh and please have a glass of Merlot for me!


  2. Just for you my friend, I shall have many 🙂


  3. I hadn’t heard about electric bikes till now. The thought of them makes me smile. Forget posting! Just have fun.


  4. don’t forget to try the mudbaths at Calestoga! … the town square and the Inn in Sonoma are fantastic. If you do wine tours north of Napa … there are two wineries to take note of .. Beringer, just a bit chateau building where they sell wine from grapes they don’t grow is the copycat … but Benzinger .. just up the road have a free-trolley-trip through their vinyards that teach the agriculture of it … as well as the ‘how we make wine’ and the place as a swingin-sixties history too ..

    p.s. … for travel, a hot-stick or ‘keeping your files in the cloud’ is the new way to go when leaving laptops at home


  5. Sounds very fun. I’ve never been to San Francisco. Always wanted to.


  6. I have never heard of an electric bike but have seen the ones with a 2 stroke motor on them………….


  7. It seems as if it was a glorious day! Awesome!


  8. Love your last paragraph and I’m glad you’re having a relaxing break
