Post for June 2, 2021
I started the day on Campbell Island, on the Mississippi River.
Pat and Jean were my hosts, and they were amazing. In addition to giving me a very cosy space, they’re unusually easy to talk with. And just as striking, Jean is also undergoing cancer treatment and loves cycling. She and I had wonderful conversations about how cancer has challenged us yet also made our lives better.
The cycling today started with the lovely trails I enjoyed yesterday, but half-way through, the trail ended. Some tough roads showed up, and I got lost, at least ended up on some roads that weren’t nice. A Garmin and Google Maps can give me a route, but gadgets don’t tell us how rough that road is, which is especially important for cyclists.
The song for today is Have Faith. This one is contemporary piano, which I adore. The chords and keys in this song show what we need after getting lost.
