Let’s talk about the bike first. I walked out of my apartment and saw precisely how it happened. Bike had been locked around a fence post. The bastard pulled the fence post away and ran off with my bike. It’s ok, don’t worry. I’ve learned. And not just that you shouldn’t leave your bike wrapped around a rickety fence post, but something more, something I knew the minute I said it. You see, the Universe loves to show your foolish side. So you can learn from it’s insipidness. The night I brought the bike back from the shop, I posted a pic of me on Facebook and Twitter. And what did I say? Something about, “got my bike back. But I’m underweight and look awful.” See? I didn’t say, “THANK YOU! UNIVERSE! I GOT MY BIKE BACK! THANKS TO ALL THE WONDERFUL ENERGY SENT MY WAY TO LET ME HAVE IT BACK!” No…I was foolishly self centered and said, “ewww. Look at how bad I look.” And the Universe said, “Well, if you’re not grateful to have the bike back, I’ll let someone else have it.” And someone else did.
And you learn.
So, I have to say two things. One, THANK YOU, above all else that may rattle from my tongue from time to time for allowing this simple man a really great life. And two, I’ve learned…..I really have learned. As much as I’ve seen and explored and experienced, you still learn.
NOW! I have been soooooo waiting for this moment. I can’t tell you how excited I was to share this with you, but was waiting for it to actually happen. I was asked to do a podcast a few weeks ago. I listened to their previous one’s and thought, “Hmmm. This could be fun.” And boy was it. It was one of the best afternoon’s I’ve spent in a long time. These two interviewers were clever and fun. Accommodating, poignant….and ridiculously laughable. I haven’t laughed that much in a long time. I’m grateful to them for inviting me to sit in on their show. I hope they’ll ask me back, because I really did have a great time. So, thank you Tim and Olivier!
I hope you’ll take a listen. You’ll learn some interesting things about me I often don’t write about here. Click here, get comfy, and laugh with us :)
