Went for a ride on my motorbike this morning. Bright sunny morning with just a hint of Autumn in the air. Good for the soul. Good for the mind and body too. One of the best ways to unravel the knots of tension that form in your mind is to do something that you can do well. The feeling of confidence and relaxation is bettered by very few things in life.
Since I live among the mountains, the magnificent vistas that unravel before my eyes on a ride can be truly breathtaking. I mean that in the literal sense. Can you imagine travelling through the twists and turns of a country road, totally focused on the curves and sound of your machine as she works her way up and down the gears. You feel the road rise and take you forward, you reach into the gearbox and pull out as much power as the machine can deliver. The vibration tells you that all is in perfect harmony as you crest the hill and are greeted by a rolling lush plateau of verdant undergrowth and tress that are showing the barest tinge of rouge.
Summer is gone and now my thought are steerring me towards winter. Before the tress fully turn and create a landscape of intense, calico carpeting I have got to get through my semi annual cleaning. There is so much stuff that must be seperated into the "truly necessary" and "Junk" piles. There is also a blog that needs to be taken down since I haven't posted anything there for quite some time.
What do you like to do to clear out the cobwebs and clean up the flotsam that flows through life? I'll try to keep in touch over the weekend.
