2018 has to be one of the best years of my life. I can hardly comprehend all the riding I did this year. January seems long ago. As we age years pass in the blink of an eye, I did not know it was possible still to slow time down. All those new places made me live in the now. Better therapy than anything spiritual or chemical.
Been missing my old job, the sense of purpose. I miss the money too ha-ha. But to choose being rich with the luxury car or eating cup noodles and travelling the world – hand me the chopsticks. I miss the camaraderie most. About this time of year would be the Christmas party to celebrate another year passed on our race to retirement. The government brainwashed the populace they will live forever and set the pension age at 70. Crazy because it’s a slippery slope for men’s health from 60 and beyond 70 time is luck. My very close friend I often mention on this blog just told me he has cancer. Which has spread. I can barely believe. I was thinking I would return to Australia in 2019, look for a regular job, return to society. Suddenly I am unsure.
My last two posts here in the blog-blog were more nonsensical than my usual dribble. I deleted both.
Patagonia. I was going, now I am not. But I will get there one day. As I alluded to it is expensive and challenging not to mention involves 50 hours of flying. But the real reason I cancelled was failure to plan well enough. Anyway I am not bothered at all, there is so much water so close to home. The money will pay for a few rides locally. Seasons Greetings.
