CONVERSATION

 "HEY Ol' Buddy!
Whatcha doin' out here?
Yo Mommie untie ya 
from that post in the garage?

Yer looking neither cold nor old
so c'mon let's go for a ride...
climb me...ride me. HARD.
My light's burning 
Engine's yearning:

GURRRRING, WHIRRRING
PURRING!"

  4. ha.

    first, i am glad you wore clothes when you showed up at the starbucks on your bike...ha...probably as glad as you were that i was...this one i think was right up your alley, considering you probably spent as much time on 2 wheels as you feet...smiles...do you talk to your bike much...i imagine so, like a horse...hey when the engine is yearning you might as well hit the road right?

    1. Now this is just the truth, Brian. While on the bike, I talk a lot--to God, mostly in the mode of Thankfulness...and in other ways, say to God that I want nothing, really...just to be near Him. And ya now what? The more I practice that, the closer we seem to get.

      Don't have to ask for much any more. Thing just happen! I KNOW you know what I mean. And...for the record, I'm sitting here @ 11:30 PM wearing a shirt, trousers, and socks...(I don't "DO" naked very well.......)
      ha!
