it's not about the bike

"I had learned what it means to ride the Tour De France. It's not about the bike. It's a metaphor for life, not only the longest race in the world but also the most exalting and heartbreaking and potentially tragic. It poses every conceivable element to the rider: unspeakable bad luck, unthinkable beauty, yawning senselessness and above all a great deep self-questioning.

During our lives we're faced with so many different elements as well, we experience so many set backs, and fight trying to stay upright and to have a little hope. The tour is not just a bike race, not at all. It is a test. It tests you physically. It tests you mentally, and it tests you morally."

On my way home tonite, something strange happened. I walked by the bushes and heard some noises. A little tabby came out from it and stopped in front of me. Then he started saying "mieow_ mieow mieow_ mieow_ mieow mieow mieow" I wondered if he wanted to say:

A. "will u bring me home?";
B. "hey your baguette smells nice. Are u going to make salmon sandwich? May I have some?";
C. "go away or I'll…" or
D. nothing but a mieow

Every once in a while, the idea of adopting a cat will pop up in my mind. I think it is kind of nice when I open the door, a cat runs to me and welcomes me home. At dinner time, other than sharing water with the cactus, I don't mind sharing my cheese sandwich with this little kitten. But, given my history of failing to raise 3 pet tortoises, may be it's not a good idea afterall.

Had a 3-hour long meeting today. It's time to shut down the computer, as well as my mind.

I diagnose myself with antiquephobia. Again I dreamt about breaking my client's antique when I do a photo shoot for them. Maybe I can break the spell by actually smashing one. Well before I can afford testing this, a strong black coffee may help.

Van Gogh Museum Cafe

The radio was playing Peter Gabriel Don't Give Up when I woke up this morning. In bed, I thought about my dream. I wore 2 different shoes. They look similar but certainly not a pair. My mind was blank. I was just looking at them for a very long time.

Nearly fell from my chair when I saw this Van Gogh Museum Cafe ad. a bit too good, too clever.
