Kids' March Break

I had to forego my workout today (and possibly the entire week) to pick up my kids - Issa from her gymnastics class and Tin from her daycare. After picking up Issa, we stopped by the Oriental store for some goodies - mostly hopia and grass jelly drink. The walk was cold for all of us. I napped at their place and took Monica's bike on the way home (for Aggy's ride at Icebreakers). Her bike is what mountain biking is NOT all about. It was heavy, inefficient and takes all the fun out of riding. I would hate for Aggy to be initiated into mountain biking with this bike.

Outside Looking In

I can't seem to shake the blues today. After having a conversation last week with a friend who seems to be regularly seeing someone now and after seeing Emily and Jamie hug and kiss affectionately, and after reading Genevieve's poignant letter to Jamie (which is posted on his wall), I was once again reminded of the special friendship they all shared. I'm still an outsider looking in. Maybe it's jealousy for a friendship alien to me. I'm actually happy they found their own comfortable and protective cove. It's true, the whole scene is part of the human connection I've pursued and I'm fortunate to even be within the radius of their orbit...but an outsider nonetheless.

The moment has run its course....gotta move on beyond my horizon in search of other moments which are so few and so far in between. It's a vast and arid wasteland up ahead. The journey will be long with no guarantee of an oasis along the way...but such is the way of TheLoneRider.
