I hear you ask
I see it all
Why wouldn’t I?
I’ve been there before
Let my warm hand cover yours
My doubt once matched yours
But it doesn’t
Not locked doors
Not hard places
And certainly not people
A person who is bent on rising
Energy is formless
It seeps through doors that were locked against us
Closed windows won’t prevent it
Good energy finds the crevices
Cold hearts thaw like ice in the sun
Arms open almost against their will
Faces that once turned away
Will swing back in shock
You won’t even know what you’ve got
But you’ll feel it
It’s real then
Energy take you high
Where nothing else can touch
Beyond these small shallow grounded things
That your little brain, which tries to ponder
And figure it out
Just has to let go
Of all the doubt
Replace it with

We all have to dream and plan but at some point we get past that and have to get over ourselves as well.
Header photo is of a moment a few years ago when I stood back from planning one of my solo rides out west and realised that this moment was the start of something.
It was special.
I spent ten days travelling by myself down some very isolated roads in the outback and hours alone in my helmet.
I overcame a lot of self doubt to even get started and turn out on to the highway that first day.
Then every one after it was a morning sweat of “what happens if..” as I ran through the checks of strapping on luggage and ensuring my bike was okay to launch again.
I won’t bore you with the “ifs” there were many (I’m highly imaginative.)
None of the negatives occurred and a lot of wonderful things did.
A long story maybe for a book one day.
There are some other photos and a couple of little videos below.
