My head bobbled long after I got to Limon. Question is, after a solid sleep will I be able to overcome the human propensity to dwell on the negative, or will I be able to retrieve the sweet meditation of those first gentle miles?

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.

    Randy bought a new helmet and we rode our bicycles to get groceries last night after touring the neighborhood for just a couple of miles.
    See how your journey is inspiring…?

    short-term propensity to dwell on the negative. But at least for me, when I get more than a couple of days removed the negative fades almost completely but the positive doesn’t. I tend to think you are the same.

    I try to lean in that direction, and find others who do the same have an overall positive outlook.
