|I have elected to sequester myself in this humble cabin.|
Two weeks of meditation have taken me to a cross roads. I have chosen my path and it goes without saying that it is not the popular one. O.k., o.k., it's "the one less traveled". I was trying to avoid that phrase. Through consultation with Mallory, Shackleton and Crazy Horse I have been cleared to leave my fellow DBD'ers in the dark about what my untested training regime consists of.
I can however, let my readers know that I have been sufficiently poked, prodded and tested in an effort to discern whether I am physically up to the challenges that await. My physical possessions now consist of a loin cloth, bike shoes, bicycle, lap top (from which I write to you), and one spear.
Please think of me in the coming months as I work to control my physical and mental being through deep meditation and physical feats of which I do not yet know. I will see you on the other side at the Ragnorok and the Trans Iowa this spring. I will introduce myself for you may not recognize me (think Tom Hanks in Castaway).
If you see my lovely wife and two adoring cats, please send them my best.
More to come...
