Moosomin And The End Of A Slump



So, as I have mentioned, there was a bit of slump for a couple days as I was biking through the prairies with a hard wind on my face and not so ideal whether. I was describing this period to friends as being like "that point in a Romantic Comedy where everything is going wrong but you know things will just start to go write right around the corner".

And today it did. I must say that I've noticed that I am severely affected by people being rude or mean for some reason and the their actions will reflect and resonate in my head over and over again as I try to figure out why/how they could be so mean/rude and/or inconsiderate of other people.

Leaving Saskatoon, I had two people yell and honk at me for the first time which was kind of disheartening but I chalked it up to them being hot and tired in their trunks and this telling me off, for them, was like how a dog pants when it's hot and was they're only way to cool down.

I was also going to write something about speaking with the rudest woman I've ever spoken too but I realized (after writing the paragraph, that there's no reason to still think about that now!

I spent the day hanging out with Bob Dylan and rolled into town listening to The Man In Me which was so nice to feel a bit of the Dude come back into the picture.
