AS WE GET OLDER - TAKE A MOMENT
I recently gave a short talk on aging and training. And I used this car analogy to illustrate the changes and differences of then and now....Two weeks ago. I was in London. Picked up this brand new Volvo from a rental company at Gatwick airport. Only had ten miles on it ! Had all the whistles and bells. Didn't know what they did ! Proximity alerts, lane movement, paddle shifters, seat warmers, folding mirrors, reverse cameras, GPS etc the list of functions were endless !!! It was brand new, shiny, sexy looking, no damage, sleek, fast, low miles, no wear and tear, could drive for hours, find it's way, comfortable, reliable and safe. Just like me/us when were younger lol !!!! The other photo is my old Suburu Outback. Loads of miles, not sexy, torn seats, engine light has been on for 26 months (needs 5 sensors), cruise control doesn't work, more dings and dents then a car in Ramot, steel screws keeping the external panels on, the electrical sockets don't work, have to change at least one light bulb every 4 weeks, has a hard time going up hills, great on gas, reliable and both my bikes fit in the back ❀ What's the real difference ??? I didn't really feel comfortable in the "new" car. Too much to learn and fumbling my way around. My "old" car, I love driving Su Su. Grown into that car over the years. It's slow, steady, reliable, take few licks and kicks, just keeps on running even if it's not too fast, but a tough old car and keeps on going forward !
MY HUMBLE CONCLUSION
1)Don't compare yourself to others or your younger self. That's not who you are.
2) Accept the changes in yourself as you get older. Be more patient and understanding with yourself and others.
3) Keep being creative, learning new skills, be compassionate and kind, make new friends, reach out and cherish old ones, challenge yourself, no expectations, lose attachment, travel more, tell the people you care about everyday that they are loved, love who you are today ❀
Much love and aloha

Saw this little, cool piece of art whilst walking around Sarfend in'it !πŸ˜‰ Something I have been saying to myself for so long....I can't even remember when it started exactly..Late single digits or early teens I'm sure. Always felt like a square peg being hammered into a round hole at school ! Can't always take the edges off to make it fit to someone else's expectations ! Or it loses it's shape and "itself" ! Create and create again...Don't be afraid to fail and fall flat on your face....Lose the "no pain, no gain" bs media marketing hype when you train. If you love what you do...And surround yourself with like minded people. Who are vested in you're success, and well being as much as you should be....! You will grow, give and push in all areas of you're life. Have to learn to let go to give freely and receive on all levels ❀ Much love and aloha xxx

I'm a music lover....And today was a little something very special. Went to Abbey Road studios ! Walked across the iconic zebra crossing. And thought about my love. As many others I'm sure. Of The Beatles and their musical impact, and everlasting legacy ❀ A cool moment in time. Then continuing the magical mystery tour to Camden Lock Market ! What a transformation this area has gone through. My grandfather grew up here on Delancey Street, born in 1899. The Dublin Castle pub ! Madness first real gig. And the venue the dear, sweet and tragic, Amy Winehouse drank, served pints and sang ❀ Dingwalls is another iconic musical venue. My dear friend, Mark worked on the door for many years❀ The streets have a array of incredible music stores with wonderful collections on vinyl....! Got myself a sweet tonic 2 tone shirt of the sale rack at The Modfather ❀ That's for The Specials gig in June !!!! And I got to share the day with one of my dearest friends, Christine Vaughan❀ Makes it an even more unique walk down memory lane. But creating new memories and smiles in these troublesome times, is essential ❀ Roll up, roll up for the mystery tour, it's waiting to take you away ❀

"Out da box" Poseidon X Gravel Grinder bike ❀ 2nd test ride... And I love this bike ! It needs a few thing's....Nothing major...44 wide bars, Shimano pedals...The claris shimano gear set is pretty smooth ! Bumped up the tires to 40. It rides as smooth as a Brazilian beach volleyball player πŸ˜‰πŸ€™β€ And I just beat the rain !
