I am finally up and about! I road my bike today for the first time in weeks. I am whole again. Sounds like an overstatement, but it is how I feel. When I am riding I am graceful and feel beautiful. Just nothing else like it in the world. The bike really is my deux ex machina, it has changed my body, mind and spirit -- all for the better. And like in the all stories -- just in the nick of time.
