(Charlottesville Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator) Amanda Poncy out for a morning walk with Buddy, five year old tricolor hound. Coincidentally, Poncy is walking on the 1976 TransAmerica Bicycle Trail, a 4247 mile transcontinental trail established for the Bicentennial.

Pedestrians momentarily rule. People see and speak to each other. Smartphones are stored.

Walking about, everything is almost black and white, a most salutary condition.
