The juxtaposition ....serenity in chaos with @mooseindahouse @lookupfromfalling.
I feel like humans in general respond to dichotomies. The contrast of two unseemingly related notions calls to us. People often ask me why I ride bikes when they continually see me with wounds, bruises, poison oak, and whatever other ailments I show up with on Monday. This picture is the perfect response to such inquiries. Pain is unavoidable, it is wrapped up within the very essence of existence. If we're lucky, at the end each day, we can say that the beauty and love we experienced outweighed the difficulties that are inherent to consciousness. It will never be all love and no pain, or vice versa, as they are inextricably linked. We don't tell people not to love because they will feel pain, we merely try to hedge our bets so the odds are slightly in our favor. I took a good spill this trip, @mooseindahouse
even crashed at the end of this feature.. But ya know what? It's worth the pain to experience this kind of bliss and pure beauty. There is something about Listening to the chaos emitted by the tires as they desperately clamor for traction while the sun peacefully sets within the valley floor. It resonates deep within the very fibers of our humanness. I was Fortunate enough to get 3 days of the purest of joys and serenity for the cost of only a small amount of pain. I don't think anyone could ever ask for more than that. Thanks @mooseindahouse
for one hell of a good time.
