bike therapy

Alas, our aged cat of 16 years had to be put to sleep today after weird health hiccups in October and again in February. But today was her final day. After much joy with her, I had my bike ride home, knowing she'd be buried by the time I returned.

Knowing I had biked to work, my boss offered me a ride home, but you know, biking offers up the perfect opportunity to let those emotions flow everywhere:
  1. It's ok to cry, it just looks like you got a bug in your eye. Both eyes.
  2. The shaking body is from the intense workout... or is it?
  3. Finally, going at your own pace, to reflect on years of companionship and the loss does wonders for thinking things through and remembering.
