Still sparking! I've had a few setbacks but I'm still riding and still working on healthy habits. I'm looking forward to an awesome semester with lots of cycling on a new bike :) happy sparkaversary everyone!
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
