a better bike I had to build one (well as much as i can)
a challenge I enjoy is to make parts (stuff that works)
along the way my interest in art and etching brass
began to percolate,
The important thing to remember tho (at all times) is to just RIDE.
ride em like you stole em
suck air like you're robbing the bank
just leave other peoples stuff alone
or get your ass kicked
if you are young and impressionable
turns out life is shorter
than you think
better find out what you love
and do it.
I like choppers and I like to see what others have made; not bought. Some things get scrounged while others are meticulously defined. That is the contradiction that life presents and in its balance is what catches my eye.
and thats the way it is with music; and thats how it was with work,
at least i got it while the getting was somewhat good; before the spotted owl.
very different here on the coast.
work was everywhere
and everyone was working
the howling of chainsaws at 10,500 rpm, sing a very different tune
why is this important? because that was the beginning of the depression today.
we were put out of work first
run out of the woods
the bus i converted in '78 , we left the city to live in the woods
and nothing beats the olympic national forest.
skip to y2k
i spent 5 yrs rebuilding the landscaping at the beautiful quinault lodge
only to learn how stupid a large corporation is from the inside.
yes, one of the yearly replacement managers saved them some
by eliminating my full time job -so i walked
it was their loss. the groundskeeper is an important position for a lodge/resort.
more than that manager was!
there are a lot of others here had the same experience
but thats not unusual, it happened clear across the country!
