Lately there have been some changes not only in my life but in the lives of those around me. Generally speaking they are for the best. My brother and his wife have worked long and hard to adopt, and that dream is now days away from coming true.
I celebrated another successful trip around the sun (April 6th) surrounded by friends and family. My 47th such trip.
My girlfriend's daughter is having a birthday soon herself. Friends accomplish great things. Old grievances are forgiven.
As I lay out my plans for the coming days and weeks I'm struck by how much can change in a blink of the proverbial eye. Life is generally good and I am enjoying it.
So far my attempt to ride every day in the month of April has been successful, and has even lead to me finding new roads, new sites and new adventures. The weather has cooperated with me so far and although the heat and humidity that Florida is famous for is coming...it's not here yet. This heat and humidity have convinced me that I need a lighter summer jacket.
I will wear my jacket today when I ride, which is black and heavy, to protect me from the elements and possible crashes...but I will curse it. For being heavy and black and so very, very hot when I sit in traffic or at a light. I need something lighter. I need something soon.
I am slowly but surely racking up the points in the Equinox to Equinox rally. Well I may not win I feel that if I continue to add points daily I should, at least, reach my goal of a top 25 finish. Thanks to Fuzzygalore's website I was able to find some things that I would have missed otherwise, and also learned that I really need to visit some cool stuff that isn't on the list.
Kimmie is calling...I need to ride.
