Old Dude’s Tour – Day 10

Are you afraid of the wild creatures at night?

No. We are together the wild creatures of the night.

On this bicycle tour, there’s a problem with hurry. Hurry is an unexpected deadline. It feeds on anxiety. When I feel it’s grip, I’m not connected, to the earth and the other travelers on this asphalt.

Out of hurry and I left my sunglasses in a grocery store checkout line. Out of hurry I  slipped off the shoulder of the road trying to catch up with my friends. A few miles later a trucker passed me, moving completely over into the other lane. The driver even slowed down to minimize the slipstream coming off the trailer.

In bicycle touring one is good. Five is much  better.
