Winter has arrived in glorious fashion. The rays of the sun, no longer share their warmth embrace and the evening spreads an ill faded scourge of darkness over the land. There is just something bad about waking up and going to work in the dark. Its worst when I depart work on the same day and the sun is setting. Missing daylight just ruins my whole day. The bleak situation is compounded by the fact that black ice is keeping me from getting on my cycle to ride.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays but the lack of sunshine and the inability to ride just makes me cranky. I refuse to give into the negative vibes this may cause. Just a few days ago, I was in line with this cranky dude. His whole demeanor was just sour. If this guy had a magical ferry fly out of his butt and grant him 3 wishes he would complain that he did not have enough wishes. This guy was giving off such negative energy, I actually moved back a few spaces in line to rid myself of his adverse stench. I definitely believe that having a foul attitude is contagious and I do whatever possible to stay away from people absorbed in it. I wanted to be like, “dude if you’re so miserable then do whatever it takes to be happy”. Why live such a miserable existence?
It got me thinking of a new book idea. Call it the Motorcyclist Survivors Guide to the Cycle Armageddon. It would be an instructional manual for bikers to live a fruitful life if they find themselves away from their motorcycle for an extended period of time. Someone else will need to write this b/c the thought of it is too depressing to ponder.
