Life is silently laughing
I could argue that my youth couldn’t have been any more perfect. Treeforts, pool parties, sports, friends, a loving family and a Great Dane named Cleo molded me into the tall, goofy self that I wake up with everyday. Why did I get so lucky?
Today is February 8, 2012 and I ride my bike through the streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina for a living. I ride bikes and get travelers and visitors to do the same thing, every day. It’s my passion because I can cycle for the rest of my life without tiring, no pun intended. There are times where I have to take a step outside myself to analyze the randomness of my existence.
What drew me to this country? What were the most impactful decisions? I think too much about this stuff really. I guess the point is not to think at all. Things that bring me into the moment are: biking obviously, kids, birds, drawing, strangers smiling for no apparent reason and meditating when I’m unselfish with my minutes. What are yours?
A friend asked if I could free write life experiences and my take on them. I thought this would be easier. Like I said, I ride bikes, not put thoughts on paper. Moving on, I guess if I had the chance to say something for the world to hear that may push a positive, progressive impact in society, it would probably be the following:
Life knows better than we do. If you think something that happened, is happening, or something that you think will happen, should actually be something better, LIFE IS SILENTLY LAUGHING AT YOU. Some people claim karma. I say she has a sense of humor. If you trust that what is is for a reason, then suffering cannot touch you. Accept and enjoy the ride!
Another “dicho” of mine is actually “less is more” so I’m going to end my rant here. Right now I’ll take advantage of plugging my passion. For those coming to Buenos Aires, never hesitate to email me if you’re interested in learning and exploring this beautiful city on some comfy bikes! Viva la bici!
