Fear

Learning to live with fear has been a highlight of 2012.  I don't aim to conquer fear.  Acknowledging it and saying yes anyway is where it's at.
Practicing being present and riding only this one little section of gravel or mud or snow or ice.  Forgetting about how far from home or how unlikely it seems I will ever return there.
Willingness to fail or fall or both.  Singing at the top of my lungs.  Telling my friends I'm having a little trouble with fear today.  These are the tricks that get me further up the road.
