Let every day be another small adventure, let there be the slightest obstacle to overcome. It’s like going uphill on the bicycle and knowing that after going uphill follows thrills of downhill rush. We need problems small enough to solve before we go to bed. To know you’ve done the best you can is the best surprise. Today it snowed and bicycling to work grew from Monday habit to adventure, we never fell, and darkness lessened just enough; tomorrow it will snow again so we changed the tire just to keep adventures small.
