last wednesday, i rode my bike to work at six am. i had this great feeling inside of me as i traced a path in the thin layer of frost. not a single car was out that morning, just my bicycle and i cruising down clarkson. there wasn't any sound except my tires grazing the pavement and the street lights flickering above me. it was almost surreal, like a dream. the black sky, cold air biting my nose and silence to my destination. it was peaceful. thoughts that entered my mind disappeared with every rotation. i felt so free.
