Holiday break. Some pretty terrific riding, making merry, and family time over the last week has me in a reflective state, and with the news of Scud's passing on to the great trail in the sky, the New Years Resolutions have come gushing forth.
|walk on water|
|become famous enough to have your own sticker|
|wheelie like a Wittwer|
|be worthy of your gear and your riding partner|
|inspire a kid|
It's been a pretty intense week. And I don't throw this term around lightly, but I can honestly say that I feel blessed just to have stood before Scud, like so many other people, and existed in that moment as the sole focus of his attention and care, which were both enormous. It was like when you spoke with him, you were it. He was with you.
I hope I can carry that forward.
Shine on, you amazing man. Someday, I'll meet you at the very top.
Up, up, up.
