Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair
for the future of the human race.
Garrett left this morning to ride in the Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York.
He's going to have a blast. He's a mellow man, so I'm doing the Snoopy happy dance on his behalf.
Cycling is his passion.
One of the best things about having a passion is getting to share it.
|We start 'em early around here.|
|The perfect potty training bribe: bike with no pedals.|
Although, he trains practically every day, Garrett participates in only a few organized rides each year.
|Tornadoes hopped all around us when we arrived at the 2012 Red Bud Classic, but the weather didn't dampen our spirits.|
|When Max received his first real bike this spring, I'm not sure which of my guys was more excited.|
What is your passion? Have you shared it with anyone?
As silly as it may sound, my biggest passion (omitting family relations) is the topic of preventing divorce. I find myself jotting notes, highlighting passages, reading books I wouldn't have read two years ago - all to obtain nuggets to pass on to those in various stages of relationships in hopes that - wherever they are on the spectrum - they have an enhanced result. OK - I need to stop now - I feel a speech coming on.ReplyDelete
That's one of the things that is so special about you. Divorce lawyers get a bad rap--like they WANT people to divorce. Everyone in any stage of a relationship should consult your blog at shelharrington.com Plus, you manage to make the topic amusing.Delete
Unfortunately, I have many interests--so many that I often find it hard to focus on doing one thing well. But if I were forced to name a passion, I would have to say reading. When I retired,I knew I would never have a boring day as long as I had a book to read.ReplyDelete
Glad Garrett has found his passion and is able to pursue it.
In various forms, stories have always been my passion, too, Dee Dee. As a child, my parents moved our family far enough into the "country" that we had a long distance phone number, no friends within walking distance, and NO CABLE TV. Books filled many hours that would have been "boring" otherwise.Delete
As you know I have a cyclist in my house as well, although he is not as speedy as Garrett! I have had many passions over the years but the ones with staying power are working with children (the coolest place to start!),art, music, reading, and writing. I know that these are my true passions because I can lose myself and all track of time when I am in the zone- and I emerge more energized as the result of the time spent.ReplyDelete
The world is a better place because you follow your passions, Lisa!Delete
