A hiatus of sorts....

- suspension: an interruption in the intensity or amount of something
- a missing piece (as a gap in a manuscript)
- foramen: a natural opening or perforation through a bone or a membranous structure

This week has seen all of the definitions of a hiatus for me. I have kept working but up until yesterday really I put things on hold in a lot of ways. I had a crazy intense riding weekend, put in a total of 11 hours on the bike in two days all in Pisgah. It was great but wrecked my body. So I took a bit of time off the bike until yesterday. Yesterday was a simple spin around Bent Creek, just needed to blow out the legs and today I will stretch intensely. I also took a break from the web thing for a bit. I thought some reflection time might be in order, but ironically i took a break from reflection time as well.

-A missing piece- for those that know me you all know things have been a bit haywire in the last month, but hopefully that missing piece will be cured in the coming weeks and I will feel the warmth of home again.

The natural opening, this is more of a comic relief for everyone. I don't know how well the photo really shows it, but I took a shot to the head working up in Barntown this week. I was removing a cut tree from the trail corridor and well I hit myself in the head with it. Yeah I pulled it right into my head and "whap", instant headache. Chuckle all you want, but remember KARMA...

This is why it's so important to carry a camera at all times. Glad you're ok!
