there’s a claire in there

I have always considered Claire to be forward thinking – obviously this is why she has had a Brompton since 2009 and I am just dillydallying around the edges with the Bike Formerly Known As.

I have also always considered Claire to be intelligent, socially minded, ethically driven and just freaking good fun. A former teamster at the NGO formerly known as, I have had the pleasure of Claire’s sharp insight and bright laugh for a number of years. Passionate about women’s rights, about sustainability, about people, I have always considered Claire to be an asset to any project, any dinner table, any bar stool.

Then Claire moved to Sydney and I thought she was nuts.

Luckily, she has a chance to redeem herself as yet another itinerant, irregular, unregulated, out of the box guest blogger (this is what I am calling the process by which I give her an author log in and then I’m not sure what happens next).

It’s like naming your Tour de France team and thinking, hey, was I meant to give everyone a t-shirt or something? And like, does anyone have a map of France?
