The Rider

Cover of "The Rider"

My friend Ken sent this quote to me today.



“Velvet pillows, safari parks, sunglasses: people have become woolly mice.

They still have bodies that can walk for five days and four nights through a desert of snow, without food, but they accept praise for having taken a one-hour bicycle ride.

‘Good for you.’

Instead of expressing their gratitude for the rain by getting wet, people walk around with umbrellas.

Nature is an old lady with few suitors these days, and those who wish to make use of her charms she rewards passionately.”

from Tim Krabbe’s, The Rider

  1. Well, here goes. I’ve decided that I need to try something different to help get me back on track so I’m going to try this. How hard can it be to devote 4 minutes every morning to this? I’ll keep you posted!
