Got back on the motorbike yesterday after a three year hiatus (pillion only). I was nervous at the start and as Jason accelerated through some early curves, was terrified. After a short bout of hyper-ventilating, I reminded myself that being on back of the bike used to be one of my favourite things in the world. Emboldened I opened my eyes and was captivated by the beauty of Central Australia nearing sunset. I relaxed, breathed it in and felt alive, blissfully, alive.
Jumping off the bike at home, I couldn’t stop smiling. I tell Jason that we need to do this every time we start to feel miserable. He agrees, “It’s good for what ails you and for blowing away the cobwebs”.
