It’s a bittersweet day today.
I left work early. = good!
Rode 140 miles to the south on the Yamaha, letting the 1900cc motor do what it was made for- chewing up the highway. = good!
The rains had surrendered to mostly sunny skies and warmer temps. = good!
Started out with a good tail wind. It seems like the past few times out, I’ve only had head winds. = good!
No cop entanglements. = good!
Reached my destination at a family gathering. Met some people I had never met before. Saw others I wish I could see more often. = good!
With so many things going good, how can this be a bittersweet trip?
My uncle’s funeral is tomorrow. = bad.
And a big bad too.
