I still want the new bike. And I need more than ever to ride because riding runs through the veins that connect my hands to my being.
It is hard to explain the feel of freedom that comes with riding.
Riding is like a rebellion that can carve canyons and emotions with cylinder strokes that balance delicately between living and having lived.
Christopher Cross tells the same of "Sailing". The words he crafted to capture the act of living inside the passion of sailing is nothing short of remarkable. A poetic revelation for living. Perhaps even for living again.
Sing along with this video rendition of "Sailing" and hear him speak to redemption, second chances, loving again, and living for real.
My favourite lines:
"It's not far to never never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free ... "
Soon to be scraping kneez broer!
