What lovely images - and I totally recognised the narratives you developed when you were cycling. It’s made me aware that I often develop similar narratives before anything actually happens - and I’m telling myself it’s to create a buffer for when something really happens (! - I know… lots to learn, but that’s good). So, on a day when I was struggling with today’s practice, this has made me understand the practice perfectly. So I shall practice it tomorrow :-).

I love the idea that being in touch with the ephemerality of things is a way to connect with humanity. I’m inspired by your stories, I’ll try to stay grounded and connected to my experience the next time I’m affected by a worldly wind. Thank you.
