surfing the traffic on my single speed this evening I had a very Gollumesque experience
as I dodged in and out of the car traffic I argued in my head
"don't second guess yourself, don't second guess yourself"
verses
"check again, is that hole going to close, check again, is that gap big enough..."
the journey has a never ending rhythm of re-evaluation
never holding a straight line
accelerating for closing opportunities
creating options when doors shut before you
it is a game
a game with dangerous consequences
fun
but risky
the second you get too cocky, that is when you get slammed
man small....nature big
respect it
