Finally, a spring like day and unlike winter I actually wanted to go outside for “Bill Time”. I did not need a motivator like primo crust. No, it was just that nice. And I set out on my bike and climbed to a quartzite ridge. The ride was not easy. Not saying that I am out of shape … well maybe. But the morning paralleled my life. Forged by transformation. Summer heat and winter freeze. Modern stress and the pressure to work a 40 hour week. Transformed by other people, friends, and loved ones. Living within and around the sedimentary people. I am metamorphic. I am altered. And this morning I added another experience.
