"In the beginner's mind there are many possiblities, but in the expert's there are few."
That is not to proseltyze any religion (actually I have never thought of Buddhism as a religion).
But, as much as I respect (even revere) -- and appreciate -- the opinions of those on this 50+ forum who have vast amounts of knowledge and experience, I wonder if sometimes it is not better to return to the simple days of:
"Let's jump on a bike and see where it takes us?"
Forget the CF's and SPD's... Just ride and enjoy... And whatever contributes to that enjoyment is the right choice...
... Or are those days gone for us?
... Now I'll go look for my fire extinguisher. I have a feeling I'm gonna need it!
