Day 437 – (AD 1,596) – 24.0 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled 24.0 miles on my Schwinn 170. My totals are now 34,347.5 miles; 55,277.0 kilometers.

I am now located at 34.38% to my new destination and goal point on Mars.

Something new and different –


Dear Madam, did you never gaze,
Thro' Optic-glass, on rotten Cheese?
There, Madam, did you ne'er perceive
A Crowd of dwarfish Creatures live?
The little Things, elate with Pride,
Strut to and from, from Side to Side:
In tiny Pomp, and pertly vain,
Lords of their pleasing Orb, they reign;
And, fill'd with harden'd Curds and Cream,
Think the whole Dairy made for them.

So Men, conceited Lords of all,
Walk proudly o'er this pendent Ball,
Fond of their little Spot below,
Nor greater Beings care to know;
But think, those Worlds, which deck the Skies,
Were only form'd to please their Eyes.

Stephen Duck, On Mites

OPOY is our memory quilt of the atrocity of the Pulse massacre that occurred 2 years ago.

The titanium grey strips represent all those persons who tragically lost their lives. The colored strips represent the survivors.

Our intent is to compact the strips to, hopefully, portray, how the individuals may have felt as they were confined within their hour(s) of need and desperation.

The terror and loss of life is also our intent to express that we as a human can also celebrate the freedom of our individuality and our aspirations to reaching an equality of humanity.

Visit our site Quilts SB at https://quiltsb.blogspot.com/2017/09/q155-opoy-new-quilt.html to see and read about our composition and the design of OPOY Andy and I presented on the 1st anniversary of the tragedy.
