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

Back in the Bend

North Bend, WA

At once, the homeland is that where I exist. The dwelling is quite up to the task, with both running water and internet alike. Certainly to have so much technology in one spot may leave a person mystified, but I assure you the purpose herein is simplistic in nature and for all intents and purposes used to improve humanity.
Julian is no more; I understand an arson actually burnt it to the ground… I’m not sure who that’d be… The roads are still there though… that was the only good part anyway. Home is normally exceptional this time of year, with intermittent rain and snow to add to the frigid temperature. At the moment this is not the case, so I’m crossing my fingers that over the next two weeks up to the start of California the weather might hold up.
