A Shade of Ash # 5 – Skate of Emergency
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. – Desmond Tutu
We need positivity and happiness right now. A whole bunch of it. This COVID-19 thing has all of us in a state of emergency. I did one better and declared a personal skate of emergency. One because all the gyms are closed which is driving me nuts and two because I’m usually pretty good with improvising. So, with keeping my social-distance from others, I decided to strap on the rollerblades and head outside for some fresh air. I needed to separate myself from all of it to be honest. I needed a chance to return to the sanctuary of positive thinking. Physical fitness is one way I do that, to clear the mind and reset. It’s a strange time in our lives indeed, but I have full faith that we will get through this. We just need to keep doing our part to stay safe, stay clean, stay protected, and more importantly…stay sane.
Oh, I know there are a lot of you that were probably expecting a 2020 Bike Writer entry, but I think this will do for now. I sold my bike late last year, and whenever the world gets back to normal, I’m definitely first in line for a new one. So, please stay tuned for the return of the Bike Writer real soon.
Stay positive folks, we got this!!!
