Quite an exhausting week. I lost a friend to cancer a week ago and started a new job.

I began the week wanting to get on my bike and keep on pedaling to the horizon. There seemed no point in striving at work when a life could be so easily snuffed out.

Today though I turned a corner. I think this new job can improve a lot of people's wellbeing. Life isn't quite so shit.
By all means peddle off into the sunset in search of excitement, adventure, and really wild things, but not because you don't make a positive difference in peoples' lives (regardless of your job). I'm afraid that excuse is not available to you, mon frère.
