Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - "Breathless"
I've read books on mythology, WWI, the spirit of Art, more Rockwell Kent, the brain
I took lots of photos, and have had plenty of dreams,
lots of days of work, good days a many
seen old time latern slides at the Wagner, some art openings, a couple dozen bike races,
pleasant nights falling asleep next to my wife
and today just out on a solo road ride.
and I was thinking, loads of time to think on a long slow ride.
I was thinking about, how all this stuff pulls together,
good beer/wine, food, cooking, learning,
the amazing feeling of being lifted by fine music.
I miss racing cx, riding today I wanted to race.
but really I knew, it wasn't the racing I missed,
it was the joy of the effort, and giving a good effort,
I'm always missing the moment of waiting in the grid, to start the race,
in me, when the light turns green.
