This post could probably go under Envy but I wanted to share my experience from my ride last night and turn the question around. We know that some envy us and that shows in their negative attitude towards us. But my question is, do you feel pity for those people?
I don't really dwell too much about the negative attitude some people have towards us, I actually pity them because they don't get to experience the sights and sounds that we do.
Yesterday afternoon I went for a mt. bike ride in a Redwood Forest Park near my house. I went through a section of the park that I hadn't been in before I saw the most majestic Redwood tree. Right next to the Sequoi (damn, no spell checker) was a sign giving a few details about the tree.
The tree was estimated to be 1800 years old, had a diameter of 14 feet at the base and stood 235 feet tall. As I stood there in awe, I actually felt sorry for those people who would make fun of me because I rather be out on my bike instead of laying on the couch in front of the TV. They will never get to experience this wonder of nature.
