One week ago, Amelie Le Moullac was killed while riding her bike in SoMa. In remembrance of her, my good friend @cameron_adams and I rode through San Francisco this weekend and spelled her name with our route.
Tomorrow night at 6:30pm, I will speak at City Hall before the Bicycle Advisory Committee. I’ll read something I’ve written on each person who has been killed while riding a bike in recent San Francisco history and what we can do to make our streets safer. If you can make it and this is important to you, it’d be great to see you there.
You can read what I’ve written here: https://medium.com/improving-our-cities/1456bbd017d9
If you live or know someone who lives in San Francisco please pass this along.

You are a fucking unicorn. You are a fucking unicorn and all this time, you have been trying to be a horse. You very carefully hid your horn every time you stepped in the room, pretending that you were more horselike and able to do horse-like things but what you were really doing was repressing the best parts of you. It’s simple: unicorns are unicorns and horses are horses. One can’t be like the other—it just doesn’t work that way. When you hide who you are, truly, madly, deeply, at the core of your being and try to fit into some other idea of you, you start dull; you shine less. Your horn starts to lose it’s power because it’s not being infused with everything it needs to stay alive and before you know it, your heart is crumpling in your hands.
The past is history, the future is a mystery, but today is a gif.
