Riding a bicycle for me is more than a chance to get a little exercise, it becomes a chance to quiet all the noise in my brain and pay attention to what is happening right now. So while I peddle my way up Chickering Rd next to Percy Warner Park, I begin to wonder, "Who am I?"
It seems much of my life has been filled with meaningless activity. In my younger years, without much of me to operate with, I tried to please as I was hoping for value and purpose. I worked at jobs I hated, tried to stay in struggling relationships for the “sake of the children”, and was mediocre at parenting.
