Welcome Back

It seems these days everyone has a blog... I have had a couple over the years, but recently, have really missed it. There is so much going on right now, things are changing so quickly, both worldwide and locally in my own personal life, and people are moving further and further away from having real conversations. Why is that? No time to ponder now, but this will be my outlet for all the dialogue that goes on in my head throughout the day and keeps me awake at night.

I have certainly noticed that the more popular blogs tend to focus on a certain topic and be aimed at a specific demographic. I assume I will mostly be talking about bikes, and just about anything and everything having to do with the greatest success of human invention, as that is by far the majority of what I think about, but it can't hurt to stray from the topic of our two-wheeled wonders from time to time.

Basically, this is a place for me to speak my mind, and (hopefully) hear what people have to say in response. I am genuinely interested to hear responses, especially of those who disagree with me.

I am certainly an idealist, so pardon my perceived ignorance or naiveness, but when did we abandon all of the lessons we were taught as kids? What happened to being able to be anything you want to be? What about sharing with others and not being selfish? And what about paying attention to the world around you and not being absorbed in your own bubble? Ok, so I know I pretty much just repeated myself, but that is one of my biggest issues: people going about their daily lives seemingly unconscious. When did we all stop caring and stop paying attention? WAKE UP!

Aye, that is enough for now. But really, let's just all have some common sense and actually use it in our daily lives.
