Life isn't an Easy Pass

 But that's okay.  With trials and struggles  our boundaries are stretched and we grow. 

Did she have big plans?

Or did she see the student, the soldier, the need before her and made the singular decision to help?

I'm a coaster junkie

Even at middle age, I find out new things about myself. That sense of falling, of flight; it's a rush. Like bike riding, those first few pedals, when your body relaxes into routine.

Must ride. What will I learn in my 60s?

The Beggar Woman

One of my totally gorgeous niece's is playing the Beggar Woman in Sweeney Todd this weekend at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield CT. Loved the play. Loved seeing her. She is the beggar woman, but she is so much more.

The lesson: We are all so much more than we appear. Oh so much more. Never forget that.

Do you see the progress?

It's slow, hopefully steady, as in life. Conscious effort and commitment.

New Beginnings

A fresh start. A new plan. A unique design. A never done before. Never will happen again. Once in a lifetime. Day.

The last of it

This is the last patch of snow still in our yard. I've been watching it melt for weeks. Wondering when its last day would be. Maybe today, tomorrow. Certainly we will be snow free by Saturday.

The Lessons Before Us

Prajna is a warrior, a hill fighter, pedal scrapper. I know she is fearful of the hills, but still she unflinchingly grinds upwards. Fighting tooth and nail for every summit. We are not on the younger side of life, but we are still living. Boston Brain Tumor Ride, May 17th, we are gunning for you. We will be ready for whatever you dish out. It's not a race; it's a ride.

To the top of Brimstone

Cycling is an amazing sport as it presents the rider with so many wonderful opportunities to reach down deep inside and push harder. Brimstone is one of those rides. And now it's done. I like Brimstone.
