Being left out, ignored, under- or un- valued, these are the worst things for me, And the more it happens the less I feel I have anything to offer. So I withdraw. And then people forget I am even here. And it spirals down.
Triple feature: all three rides I managed to get out on during the rainy month of April. In the third I actually, finally, make it all the way out to UBC to, of all appropriately gothy things to do, attend a memorial.
n this episode: Two rides and a new opening sequence featuring time-lapse video from my first ride. The first ride in this video is a pre-Valentine's Day baseline run where I decide for a moment that maybe it a race. In the second video I try out the newly paved Arbutus Greenway (which isn't very green yet) and ride up to the summit of the Arbutus Ridge. Voiced on the day before the 6-month mark of my separation, which one my cats remains upset about, but also beginning to recover. I'm not alone here.
