I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.
~Henry David Thoreau
Today was a day of serene stillness . The trance-inducing humming of my skinny tires for miles and miles left my mind with an unexpected clarity. Thoreau's words echoed in my ears as I looked through the pictures tonight. There is a subtle magnetism indeed as I am only now realizing how my unconscious yielding to miles upon miles of gravel directed me aright. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought a good dose of gravel-ly anti-epic was just what I needed.
Thanks, Ben. All your hard work made for a great event.
