ABOUT 7 YEARS AGO, I started blogging daily. Prior to that I wrote sporadically, for myself and made it into VeloNews and Competitor Magazine. I'd always ask myself when done...
... Does this make me want to ride my bike?
If it didn't,
I junked it.
Sometimes it would take me hours to write just a few paragraphs.
I got better,
Our mission has been upgraded,
The question I now ask myself is...
... Does this make me want to be true and rip?
I believe that being TRUE to what really matters
should come first and then,
we can Rip On RaceDay.
We have truing stands for our wheels because when they are out of round they are slow, and potential dangerous.
In the stand, we can check the tension of each spoke. Typically, one, or a few, have become loose and need to be tightened up. In the process, it's common to back the tension off as well.
Sometimes we can find our life spokes out of tension.
We might neglect a relationship
or skip the over life's spiritual and mystical elements
or overtighten on chasing more stuff for our might empire.
I've distilled for us,
... Be True AND Rip!
