Re: toe to earth

Electric mountain bike? What kind of newfangled tomfoolery is that? Hobnail boots were good enough for our brutish ancestors, they're good enough for me. You can only hold that opinion because you have never ridden one. - I gotta tell ya, Roy, you would love-love-love it. Every hill flattened, ever...

Re: 8:20 a.m.

8 20 am the mingo.mp3i recorded, and then re-recorded. I think it could benefit from a faster pace, a male voice.

Re: waiting to see

Adversity can inspire some pretty intense writing. I've been through a couple of rough patches, and those primal screams constituted some of my best. I hope your stretch of white water isn't too long, & you come out the other side ok.

Re: it seems a proper time to bring in ---
