Way back in August was my last real post. That was the last time my head was in a place where I felt comfortable to write and share. Many things had me in another place altogether… where writing about the fun stuff – like the riding – just didn’t seem appropriate; simply not a priority.
But I miss it. I miss expressing myself and sharing my thoughts so I’m going to kick it off again. Not in a big way, which I had thought was necessary, but just by sharing. For me it’s kind of like breathing; I need to do it. It’s mostly me who appreciates it but the fact that others choose to read my thoughts and get some enjoyment out of them is a bonus – and I love the feedback.
What prompted me tonight was Jack dressing up in his new school uniform. He had initially instructed me very sternly not to post a photo on Facebook or put it on my blog. Later on – having thought on it – he said, “Dad you can put it on your blog if you want.” So there you go… share it I have.
What I really wanted to do was tell the world! I was so proud seeing him on the verge of high school and so very grown up that I had trouble controlling the lump in my throat.
So having controlled my emotions I have now told the world… or anyone in the world who wants to look at least.
And not a word of cycling!… but that will come.
Diesel is back and Little Diesel is soon off to high school. How quickly life passes us by.
