Amen to not counting yourself lucky--or counting on luck.

Years ago, I saw an absurd movie in which Schwarzenegger was pregnant. I remember two things: 1) The movie was surpringly funny. 2) There was a great in it deliveredy by the man himself: "Luck is for the ill-prepared."

I would take it a step further and say, "Luck doesn't exist."

Life is one big long bike ride on which there WILL be innumerable moments of joy--and a shit ton of rough patches. It's not luck; it's a guarantee.

So whaddya do with THAT? You--as we say in Pennsylvania--make hay while the sun shines.

Wise words, Suki.

And if you don't (make hay while sun shines): the grass rots.

I just realized: You drove a bike on a 14 day trip, and YOU DIDN'T STOP AT STURGIS?

I have lost all faith.

A 21-day trip, Yossi. But Sturgis pretty far in wrong direction ....

Way to go Cristie! I have to say I'm a little more impressed with her tattoo than your motorcycle trip at this point. :)

Well, at least she didn't feel the need to write a 12-chapter book about it!
