I took a break from bike riding last week, in favor of some backyard basketball. I didn’t realize how much I missed the trail riding until I got back to it. So many good things are immediately available on the trail: sunshine, breeze (even if there isn’t one), birds, trees, powerful colors and sounds. Time with my son in nature.
Inevitably, we all spend too much time indoors. I’m among the most guilty, having a job that requires large amounts of face time with the computer display.
I’m going to try to do it differently this week: that time outdoors will be higher on the priority list. I’m sure that being among things that are real and beautiful can only bring a good perspective to everything else.
