Two years ago, I said I was returning to this blog. Obviously, that wasn’t true.
Life was… strange. My relationship with my partner of many years was deteriorating into something that felt more like I had a roommate than a mate. My health was up and down. I was struggling with loneliness and even depression. I didn’t realize it, but my life was slowly, incrementally falling apart.
In 2015, the relationship ended. Around that same time, I met someone… Or should I say reconnected with someone. For the first time in many years, I fell in love with someone who was fully capable of loving me in return. My mood improved, my health improved. I moved to a new house, and am now engaged to be married next year.
Everything has changed. Life is 100% better, and I can’t wait to talk about it, and to get back on my bikes! But… (there’s always a “but,” isn’t there?).
Right now, I’m recovering from shoulder surgery. A car accident last year meant months off and terrible pain. But now I’m almost whole again. The bikes, which have been sitting in a shed for over a year, can get a bright polish soon and then… the trails call! Within the next few months, I should be riding again, albiet slowly and carefully.
Stay tuned… Life is back on track!
