Life is a funny thing. We really do take it for granted. Like all the time. Think about it, whens the last time you sat you butt in the dirt, sat quietly, and took in everything you have to be gracious for? I do it frequently.
Life is too short... Not many people understand that fully until they've come close to the end, or have had the unpleasent experience of loosing a close loved one unexpected. You really should get close to your guardian angel, mine is my best friend.
Almost on a daily basis we put ourselves in postitions that, if suddenly switched to worst case, can mean big consequences. Think about mountain biking. We really do put alot of faith in our skills. If it weren't for our abilities, one bad turn could end up in bad news.
Not to be a Debbie downer, but in the mist of fun and great times, don't forget what you truely have. It could be gone tommorow. Take todays ride and make it the best of your life. Every ride should be that way.
I'll leave you with images of a couple of awesome weeks of riding.
Now go enjoy life...
