It sneaks on you, just when you don’t expect it.. Right when you feel spent at the edge of a very strong effort on the bike.. It may start below the heart as I pedal. somewhere deep inside the soul, a word , a tune, a flashing image of Michele so alive and full of hope and the emotions rock my being and within seconds I tremble. The road no longer a solid ground below my wheels, floating on sweat mixed with tears.. I yearn for her presence, almost crawling to a stand still. It has happened a few times already but the other day, as it happened once more, I raised my tear filled eyes to the sun, and there majestic in the heaven, a magnificent spotted hawk was circling above me. Yes! Right there, in the blue skies on top of the LIE service road and I was filled with the joy of a different presence.
