Years of cycling and living in Chicagoland have shown me
The wind’s never as cold when it’s at your back.
May the wind always propel you higher.
Thankyou 🙂 I can feel the propulsion!
‘welcome – I think we are all in debt to those who bring art into the world.
Love this message written in 3 sentences…in a true Bill style….short, spot on and always inspiring. 😀
thanks Kristi – you are very kind, and the wind is a hard task master 🙂
What a difference the direction its blowing can make!!
Hair in the wind.
a lovely image I am sure 🙂
it was 44 degrees here and we went for our evening walk and…. I made the discovery.
Perhaps as the Gaffer might utter: All’s well as ends better.
I always thought the Gaffer was brilliant!
It’s an ill wind as blows nobody no good, as I always say

And may you always ride downhill. Eric’s advice about the brakes is very sound, though. Also the farting recommendations.
Your aft-er-thought stinks. Oh, oh. Now we’re going downhill again.
This post makes me of a lovely quote: “Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
― W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire 🙂
thanks for sharing those lovely words!
you’re welcome Bill 🙂
i may memorize them.
If you memorize just one poem this is a good one!
Before riding the wind – check out the brakes 😆
sage advice Eric!
may you never pass wind in a crowded room!
haha! spit out my coffee on that one…now I gotta clean up!
best in an elevator where there is “no escape” 🙂
hahaha! I would die!
divine wind 🙂
ok. what? You’re funny – you can stay! 😉
Or faster 😉
