Don't Make Change too Complicated: Just Begin!

The Burning Bush

It is so amazing to me how the earth changes over the seasons and I love to watch and glory in those changes! I was on a mission this afternoon to ride 10 miles at a quick pace (for me) and it was sooo windy and then I saw such beauty that I had to stop and photograph it. I am happy that I allow myself to "stop and smell the roses" and just do not have my mission in my mind totally...because so much of cycling is sensual....the seeing, smelling, tasting (yes those pesky bugs!) feeling the heat from the sun or the cold or in my recent case...every bump in the road through my shoulders LOL....and hearing the wind rustle the leaves or hearing the geese honk...or the water running rapidly........I have missed this the last month...I have missed the sun on my body nourishing me....and I have missed pushing my body on my bike...I have missed that exhilaration....the breathlessness of it all...the challenges.......but I am getting my mojo back and enjoying every minute of it! This is day 2 back on the bike. If everything remains equal with my rehab, I hope to ride again on Thursday!
