I've been feeling overwhelmed. I have a lot going on, and it feels like I'm going it alone, and I just don't want to do that anymore. I took a bike ride, the first late night bike ride of my late night bike riding season, and I don't know what it is, maybe it's the fact that I am exercising, or maybe it's the night air, it could be the quiet streets, but something about it allows me to transcend the everyday and the lists of things yet to be done, and just open myself up to the good, and what I am beyond grateful for. It gives me a wild sense of clarity. It's as if my cares were objects that I velcroed to myself, and the wind is strong enough to dislodge all of them. Gross but true.
I wrote in my journal a couple of weeks ago that this life is a treat life. I thought it was funny when I wrote it, but it keeps ringing around me. Things can be lame, or not go your way, but for reals we have soooo much good, and there is so much beauty it's overwhelming in the most heart warming of ways.
So that's what I woke up with this morning, and I thought I'd share it with you.
