My head is spinning from what I’ve had the privilege to experience. I am truly overwhelmed with humility. I’m exhilarated like never before in my life. I think I’ve had the most life changing experience you could ever imagine. So much on so many levels, in so little time…I feel like my consciousness has expanded to such proportions that I can’t even grasp the meaning of it all enough to explain it.
I am speechless…
As soon as I take a breath and sort it all out I’ll give you a report and picts. Right now I’m dealing with getting back to reality and falling into a ALC ride post ‘partum issue which I need to deal with before it gets out of hand. (a bit of depression) I’m a little overwhelmed and need to sort it all out a little before I can explain it. You have no idea how much I care for you all, even more now than ever, and really miss you all. You’ve all gotten me through more than you could ever imagine or would ever know…
Sometimes in our journey through life we are totally un-aware of the potential and profound effect we have on other lives through our personal interactions. For every one who has shared ride experiences and heart and soul conversations/moments with me. From the crazy “Gladiators” at the front of the pack who pushed me into digging deeper than I thought was possible to get to the top of that mountain, or run with the wolves till I was delirious with exuberant pure animal joy. The mellow sweeties who have made me feel so comfortable, yet allowed my comical flirtatious ramblings with loving amusement… but really knew my true meaning. I sincerely hope that what I reveal will not effect our connection. You’ve given me the focus I’ve needed over the last few months. In times of utter depression, shame and anger, you’ve pulled me out of the horrifying abyss that had become, a familiar visitor in my life, by just being you.
I am dying to ride this weekend : )
Best Tent Mate! Robert who put up with me being a complete knuckle head all week!
