It occurred to me today the role emptiness plays in my riding. As I ride I'm always looking for emptiness, emptiness in general; and, in particular, I'm looking for that emptiness contained in the in-between spaces. It is this emptiness which holds the answer to important questions--questions like: Where could I go if someone or something comes into my space? How much room is there between me and the vehicle in front? Behind?
Almost always there is emptiness to be found, but only if I am looking.
