I was so tired after getting home from the funeral yestarday that when I got home, I fell asleep instantly. My apologies for not making it to the reception at 5:00, but I was so drained physically, emotionally etc. I even forgot to bring the bike in the garage, and forgot to alarm it!
Anyway when I got up this morning, I figured I would drive to work, instead of ride, as I am not feelin the ride vibes right now. when I went to the driveway, car keys in hand, I realized my bike was still sittin in the driveway, with the purple rememberence cloth still tied around my mirror. With warm thoughts of Julia, I went back in, geared up, and rode to work. Like all of you are probably feeling, I am missing her very much. I know in my heart that with each passing day, thoughts of sadness and loss, will be replaced by fond memories of someone so special.
I think for a few more days, and this time every following year I will tie the purple....or should I say mauve (sorry Julia ) around my mirror to remind myself, and and maybe any other fellow rider about our special Jewel.
Robert, you have a friend in me anytime you need it. Much love and support
take care everybody
