“The busy man is troubled with but one devil; the idle man by a thousand”

Lately its so busy at work…they say early to bed early to rise…yes rising early is a fact for me but not early to bed!

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” ~ Dale Carnegie

In all these…there were things that were happening around and my mind kept saying this is a good topic for my blog and things kept on piling…!! Today something happened and I just couldn’t stop writing this to myself ~

“I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” ~ Jimmy Dean

Recently one of our friends was flying from Phoenix and he got late though boarding took place on time…! The question came up then what delayed the flight, and the answer was that – just when the pilot was about to take-off the plane in the air, he remembered that the passenger’s luggage they forgot to board hahahaha! I first thought must be a joke…but then it was said that…literally on the run-way plane was running with its speed to takeoff and suddenly it was slowed down and started turning back! First people started worrying when the pilot announced – Sorry guys we have to go back as we got to load the entire passenger’s luggage!!!!

The entire situation reminded me like traveling in a bus :) ! It seems after 45 minutes delay when the flight started taking off someone asked if the fuel is filled… lol! That was the joke of the day!!

“I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Well, in between all this I moved from one apartment to another …still needs to unpack! As you can see my busy schedule didn’t allow unpacking everything.

“You owe it to everyone you love (including yourself) to find pockets of tranquility in your busy world.”

At work…I just gaze at my biker colleagues…when they all come in and go ….those sexy bikes…keep me tempting…! My temptation can be very well guessed by my colleagues when they see the sexy Ducati in red picture on my Office ID profile.

It happened so that this colleague of mine took me to show his bike…! I had a chance to sit on it….boy!!!! I was numb for a while. It’s a mesmerizing feeling…nostalgic!!!

“We all need to look into the dark side of our nature - that's where the energy is, the passion. People are afraid of that because it holds pieces of us we're busy denying.” ~ Sue Grafton

They all give me all kinds of details of where to get the bike and the places where one can go to ride….!

Today my experience I just cant express….but hope these pictures will depict the drop of my emotion and feeling..

“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” ~ Gloria Steinem

When I was driving back…I was on my bike in my thought! I did race couple of cars on the freeway (highway) and finally a good bye with my stranger racing buddies on the road.

I just remember the song….I believe I can fly….. ;)

“Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire - you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.”

Hi Dawn!
Very interesting, really a good topic for post. Sounds as a joke. Btw I couldn't imagine be without my luggage.
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” - it's true, love this quote.
Good luck to you!
