Yes, I rode to work today.

And, it was a lovely day to ride. Yesterday was gray and dreary. Today was crisp and clear.

The Civil Courts Building.
Oh, how I would have liked to just keep riding this morning. I need a long lone ride. I need to find my silence after the events of last week. There are too many words in the air. Talk. Talk. Talk. I'm a listener. I can't hear over all the words.

Yes, I need to ride into the heart of the great sadness I'm feeling...and, I don't have a clue when I will be able to make that happen. There is work. There is the Christmas thing. There is my beloved daughter coming into town for a visit. There are trails Heather and I need to walk. I'm not complaining. All these things..they are blessings.

Still...I am off balance.

Still...my heart is breaking.

Still...I need to be...

  • 35F/2C and clear for the ride to work.
  • 56F/13C with maybe a cloud or two for the home ride.


  1. Hindu and Buddhist scripture is about all that helps me anymore. Of course...the same thread runs thru all true religions. I just hear it better from those sources.

    And I'm not terribly good at being still.

    1. Apparently, at this time, I'm not very good at being still either.

      Thanks for stopping by.
