Cycling Quote

with one comment

This little piece is a signature line from an e-mail that I received, and I had to share.  It’s just wonderful and I felt much the same this morning riding in a light snowfall as the city was just coming awake.  For the moment, the world was breaking someone else’s heart.  No, not mine, not mine.

“When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day’s sensations:  bright
sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay’s call, ice melting and so on.
This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work,
leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead.  I
still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity.  But
I am mentally far away from civilization.  The world is breaking
someone else’s heart.”  ~Diane Ackerman
