Got the final PDF of a large proposal at 11:20 last nite. Got up @ 530 to read it over coffee. Saddled up @ 6 and rolled out to slam a ride in between the stress. Had to get a ride in. Glorious, tacky, 52 degrees and just pretty darn amazing and perfect out there. Super quiet. I miss the really early mornings and feel like it would be a nice shot of energy to start doing a few really early starts (like 4am or something) and watch the world wake up and the sun come up......quiet in the woods. Loud here. It's the tension and the pull that keeps it really interesting. The spaces between the two.
