i am a rock

  • Mood:
  • Music:
So, unlike a good portion of the people here, I am only 15, and I can't drive, and won't be for at least 8 months.

How about 3 cheers for a bicycle?! HECK YES.

So picture this:

It's the first day of October, a new month. It's 4 o'clock in the afternoon and you're riding your bike down a 4-mile strip of road right along the shoreline. It's October, the once packed streets are not totally deserted; all of the tourists have gone home. The sun sun is just starting to set, but the sky remains a brilliant blue, and it's completely and utterly cloudless. It's cold out, but the sun warms you just enough to keep you comfortable. You blast your U2pod as loud as it goes, and it burns your ear drums. It's just you, the music, and the road. The chorus to "City of Blinding Lights" fills you up and you can't remember the words to the song even though you know them all by heart on any given day. The only words that ring through your ears are "freedom." You are pedaling so fast that your calves burn with the lack of oxygen. But you can't slow down - you are biking to the beat of the music, because right then, you ARE the music. You are one.

And that was my day. :)

Just thought I'd share, it all just felt so perfect, you know?
