unfortunately, i had a mtb crash just before going to wisconisin so my riding was cut short due to some residuals and then was ordered off the bike until July -- man, was that tough - to feel OK but not have an outlet for all that physical energy---but do not fret I am back on my bike and note taking another chance to ride this year for granted.
the summer has been and interesting one for me to say the least. i have worked a lot on getting to know myself which has really enriched my relationships with many and opended the door to new ones...have i changed? have you noticed a difference?? maybe yes and maybe no - but i embrace the opportunity to be able to start each day with a smile on my face and an eagerness to start the new adventure of the day. so, ok. yes, I may have chnaged a little and a mere couple of months ago would not have published this for the world to see...i have learned that being true to yourself can make all the difference...i will embrace my life for what it is and make the most of everyday....enjoy a few shots of summer mixed in a slew of self portraits courtesy of my blackberry, darius.
