Every time I ride.
Anywhere I go.
Paved trail, city street, gravel, in a cathedral of green. Location is everything and nothing.
Biking is distraction from all that is perplexing and unanswered.
An affirmation of God’s and Mother Nature’s presence on earth.
It is never old.
Never an action that embraces boredom.
Always wanting for anticipation and elation.
A devotion that cannot be denied.
The days are leaning into autumn and becoming cooler. Shorter.
Autumn is a season of observation while on two wheels. Visions of crimson sumac and birch-lined ponds; sounds of migrating Canadian geese and northeasterly breezes; a bouquet of summer’s end and crunchy brown leaves.
This is a time of last-minutes exploration.
An affirmation that nothing is taken for granted – not the blue-sky days, the distance of a ride, the blessing of good health and two legs, the beauty of landscape.
Or the motion of a cherished bicycle.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.
Just go with the flow.
Like a babbling brook or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday are words that end in “tion.”
