Bouncin’ and rollin’ round the Arizona High-Country

It’s been a while since I posted as I have been doing just as the title of this post describes. ¬†Out of band as they say in tech circles…and perhaps other circles for all I know. ¬†When one is “out of band” or “off the grid” and travelling as I have been, it provides much time to think and ponder. (My brother is a truck driver. ¬†He knows too well what this is like). ¬†I have reflected on much the past two weeks and I have much work ahead to get to where I want to be. ¬†I will admit that I am guilty sometimes of thinking about the past. ¬†It’s sometimes hard to let it go. ¬†It’s getting easier as time progresses but that’s true of many things. ¬†Time heals most if not all things.

So, we move forward. ¬†It’s what we must do. ¬†What I must do. ¬†I’ve reflected on the choices I’ve made and I am reminded of a wise rule:¬†“Fret not where the world will take you. ¬†Instead concentrate on the first step. ¬†That’s the hardest part and that’s what you are responsible for. ¬†Once you take that step let everything do what it naturally does and the rest will follow. ¬†Do not go with the flow. ¬†Be the flow.”¬†– one of the rules (If you know where this is from you win a prize!).

The flow of my travels have taken me to a few new places and I was able to capture some of that here.  Many of these pictures were captured in the high country above Show Low, AZ.  After that trip, AZ is becoming one of my favorite places to ride.



Science is beautiful and astounding.

I present to you today a short 3.5 minute video with Neil deGrasse Tyson.  Currently he is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space and a research associate in the department of astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History.

We are small and we are big.  Because we are. Because we live. It is a beautiful thing. It is amazing and astounding.

Now, if you are a free thinking and open minded and can spare 15 min, you should watch this video.  This is cold hard truth.  Warning: you might not receive this well if you are a religious person.  Science is beautiful and you are AMAZING!
