Feeling positive and happy this morning … rode my bike to work. It was a short ride; 9 miles. It took 35 minutes, not much more than the 20 minute drive. Loving days like this.
This took planning. Yesterday I brought in clothes, makeup, and food for today. Before going to bed I made sure the tires were tight. Prep time: maybe an hour. A priceless use of time, for today when riding I felt wanderlust.
For 35 minutes the heaviness of life went away. I connected with nature and made eye contact with a few motorist. I said a prayer for the dead squirrel on the side of Studebaker. Said hello to a lady crossing guard. For a mile rode with a worker at Los Alamitos Race Track. We talked about his amazing amount of cycling power with his 20 year old bike, then I gave him a tongue-lashing for not wearing a helmet. He smiled and rode on.
Just drank a coco protein shake, lit a candle. Van Morrison’s Days Like This is playing, and I’m feeling stress free, ready to take on the day.
