pushing aside my worries

Chaos, uncertainty, and anxiety permeate my mind on many fronts: work, financial security, and our current geo-political cluster-f#ck among them.

Subprime lending and the over-supply of credit will have real consequences...and not just for the poor saps that reached too far to rip down a bigger casa. Our leaders in the executive branch continue to pull off mind-blowing displays of incompetence/criminality. We continue to piss away lives and money in Iraq. Work is at least entertaining for all of the usual ridiculousness, but it's a downer for the same reasons.

Aside from all that bullshit I'm really happy! 8-)

A big part of the way that I deal with stress is to ride my bike. It's good for the body, mind, and soul.

Unfortunately, it's not looking good for riding this weekend. Crap weather is moving in quickly.
This could potentially get me down, but my legs are due for a bit of rest. I rode the trainer briefly this morning, but my ass was not into it. I don't understand how I can feel perfectly comfortable riding a bike for hours and hours outside, but 45 minutes on the trainer is torture on the 'ol taint. I tweaked my saddle position and angle 4 times this morning and nothing felt right.

It'll be a great weekend anyway...food, family, & fun...starting with dinner at our favorite mexican joint tonight! When the weather gets back in synch with the calendar I'll be back outside on the bike hungry to ride.

first read the Statement of Priniples and look who signed it.
