Life in the fast lane to Slow ride..music set's the life's tempo and rhythms at times..I loaded up the cd player with some old stuff yesterday and started writing..Hollister from someone that was there in 1947 but it grew..and as Bob Seger blasted out with Roll me Away my mind was churning..I went at it for eight hours and the short story became an encompassing view of biker, biking and brotherhood covering more than half a century..A short tale became sixty pages long..as read it through this early morning I smiled and thought it may be my best...it may never be seen by others..I emailed a copy to the man who made it happen..as the Band played The Night they drove old Dixie down..
Yesterday was also the first Red and White, North and South run..my two close bro's came by early to see if I was in..Not today..I can't remember ever not going because the body wouldn't let me..I not one to share personal issues..only a handful of people have any idea what's going on..Been dealing with lymphoma and what seemed to working stopped so the last 6 weeks have been intense treatment..For someone who doesn't know much more than busting ass 14 hours a day, sleeping a few and doing it again..it been rough..some days 3 or 4 hours and I done in..finished...Well the treatment is worse than the disease and Friday they pulled the tube..
No pity parties here OK..I'm am my own worst enemy..I smoke like a train, eat mostly red meat and junk food..If I could figure out how I would have hung a IV bag of Starbucks in the truck and feed it through the shunt tube..I ride when I should rest..I work and I have been lucky in the respect that before it got out of hand we were set up pretty close to being able to run stuff online. It doesn't matter now I am head back to being me..look out..
Well it's 6am..the suns sneaking over the hill..going to be a hot one..Got the urge to ride and some how I just got hungry..Bacon and eggs..and a thanks to those who share their lives with me and offer me the opportunity to do the same here in blogland..Live to ride, ride to live..you understand..
