Wind.....

I have just got back from a cycle ride. Well Spring is here, time to get rid of the slight increase in weight that always comes with large blazing fires and bottles of red wine. Anyway the first five miles out was quite easy, I thought to myself, not so out of shape after all. Then I turned a corner and wham !, a head wind, a gale infact. The six miles back home were very hard.
Life is like that sometimes, you are sailing along, then wallop. You turn a corner and it gets harder. Well my metaphor for this is, it was hard, but I got home, it just took longer. And now I feel quite good..... deep huh ?.

It is a nice metaphor. And there are very few days as special as those first warm days of spring!

Yes em, It struck me as I was pushing down on the pedals, trying to make the bike move forward enough so I did not fall over !. And there were no downhill bits to coast....... just like life sometimes.

Hmmm....I don't do cycle rides very well, sadly...but I can go with the large blazing fire and wine..oh yes I can.
