Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

Confronting reality

North Bend, WA

Life is so hard. Really, it’s a struggle every day. A defense against the invasion of life. Take a look away and it’s gone, one choice and everything else is gone. Have you ever considered the loss you sustain by choosing to say walk on the beach verse go to the café on the corner? The possibilities of either are endless. The amount of loss involved with each are also endless. Just considering the outcome of the two is enough to warrant loss of time. Wow.
Think twice about making your choice. Or don’t think at all. Either way, you’ve probably wasted half your life just thinking about what you want to do, or procrastinating about what you need to get done to get what you really want.
