July 6th – Feeling down, out for an evening ride to cheer myself up: Just a short loop up to Chasewater at dusk.
My stomach had been bad and I wasn’t feeling great, but the evening light did make me feel better at least.
Sometimes, in summer when the weather’s not great and you’re stuck in, it can be worse than being stuck in on a grey winter’s day. The feeling of a chance lost, of summer passing without you, can be painfully real.
But today, the sunset was beautiful, Chasewater and the canal did it’s best to catch my eye, and I remembered that after all, tomorrow is another, usually better, day.
