Well, I haven’t been around as much because now that we’re well into June it is FINALLY warm enough to partake in the one kind of exercise I enjoy- bike riding. I bought an indoor bike, but riding that is boring af even if you’re watching tv. And I’m not into trail or mountain biking. As much as I have a deep fondness for nature and untamed wildnerness, I am a city girl. My bike is a city road riding bike, a “cruiser” the guy called it.
It’s like it brings up the same emotions I felt as a child when I was out on my bike. Not listening to people yell and argue and fight and slam things and punch walls. Not being trapped in an unventilated windowless bedroom (true story). Not thinking about anything beyond the task at hand and the music I’m listening to. Something very freeing and entertaining about that. And I think that’s what I feel when I go out now.
