As I write this I'm dealing with a family medical emergency in America, and as I sit in a hospital waiting room, these photos from a cyclocross bicycle race last week in Kyoto Japan strike me as a perfect metaphor for life: if you suffer a setback, just shake it off, put on a smile, and continue forward.

(PS: I just made up the Cyclocratic seen in the title; there's probably a more grammatically-appropriate word I could have made up.)

Continued here...


One comment so far...

Thoughts and prayers for you and your family. Hoping things work out.
