Giving Gratitude, or in the words of Jon Stewart, “Your moment of zen”

Here we are in November already, and while riding this weekend I had to stop and give thanks.  As I rode I reflected on the beauty of the azure sky and bay, and the way the sun sparkled on the ocean.  How lucky I am to make this ride so often, and to experience nature’s magnificent beauty!

And I mostly ride solo, but I once more had the pleasure of the company of my oldest son and his lovely girlfriend, who both radiate such positive joy!


And so while riding I gave thanks to my maker, for letting me take part in all of this.  I gave gratitude for my two  muscular legs, good strong lungs, and for the world in which I live in.  May you all have beautiful rides to bring you joy, happiness and peace.
