I have not given up on riding, nor on writing. I got this comment on my last post from Steve Williams who writes, "Scooter in the Sticks," which to me is the Gospel of scooter blogs:
OK. Just because you reach a mileage milestone it doesn't mean you quite writing and posting. Seems like that scooter has at least another thirty thousand miles in it. That translates into at least a few more posts...
I felt guilty when I read it. I put it aside for a while, as I have this entire blog for nearly the past three years during which my life has been on hold in a limbo of sorts. The end of the tunnel is in sight and it's terrifying to me. The entire course of the rest of my life is going to be decided sometime in April and I'm scared to near death. No, it's nothing like I might go to jail or anything horrible like that. I haven't been THAT bad yet.
Now I hate on Facebook when somebody posts, "Oh no! I can't believe it!" leaving the reader wondering what the hell happened. Good? Bad? How big? But for now I have to do that. Still I felt the need to reply to Steve's note in some manner and here I am, simply saying that before summer I'm going to be back in riding and writing mode, or perhaps not getting to do much of either of them again to any great degree.
If you're a person of prayer, I'd appreciate your offering a few or many intercessions on my behalf for a favorable outcome of the ordeal I'm facing. If not, perhaps cross your fingers for me now and then and send me some hopes and wishes that all will be well. Thanks!
