Thank you too: You are the bestest: Special
by: maurice

Dream your dreams and make the difference: I have never taken up driving which saddens me from time to time now: I see the freedom it gives: The independence it gives my very close friends and those I live with: Yes, driving into the country side away from the maddening world sure relieves, the stress around living under the passing clouds and the great blue sky: I sure love to wander off into the wilderness after taking public transport especially the bus: getting off in the most secluded of forresst and then just being me: The freedom I get is un-imagineable to those who live in the crowds: Thank you: You are the best: I always leave a load of my morass behind: I am that bit lighter on my return: Reality hits in rapidly again until next time:m

I Too Agree
by: Will

A ride out is too a relaxing and rewarding time. A old friend of mine used to take me for long rides. I enjoy watching the clouds much. When I'm riding I like to quietly take them in. It does gives me the time to unwind from taking care of others and all the day to day duties of life. I enjoy the rides where I get to see farm animals out and green pastures. It seems simple but it's the simple things that brings the biggest satisfactions and blessings sometimes. Thanx for sharing.
