Riding Sunday’s with Love is my favorite ride on the Peloton. Ally Love leads the ride focusing on one of the virtues and teaching her take on it. So, today, I went down to ride the only two I hadn’t yet done. Five minutes into ride one, Peloton announces I have a friend joining the ride – it was Quinnermanwithaplan. Five seconds later, Quinner video chatted and we talked almost the entire ride. FM, baby.
Quinner and I worked together back in the day at CompuServe. He lives in Boston and our paths rarely cross. The Pelly has brought us back together. What. A. Blessing. We are virtually connected and it’s better than being disconnected.
You and I are being forced into the tour de isolation through this coronacraziness. We are either riding through it or letting it run us over. The obstacle is what it is for each of us. It’s up to each of us to focus on the blessings instead of the bummers. Life is poison and wine – bitter and sweet. Life is milk and honey which means there’s gonna be bullshit and bee stings too. Focus on the blessings, friend. Happy day after Thanksgiving. Make it a day where you drink in the blessings and ride through the bummers.
Live hard. Love harder (Thanks, Teeks)…
