The day was beautiful out. The skies were so clear it felt as if I could see clear across the ocean all the way to San Francisco. It is one of the amazing things about being in Tokyo in the winter time, is that the air becomes so clear that the skies are boundless. On a day like today I had to just get out on my mountain bike and just pedal around to see what could be seen. I needed to get out and breathe in the cool dry air, and fill my heart with better tomorrows.
Eventually I made it all the way to the edge of Tokyo bay. The end of the road in Urayasu, and just gazed off into the curve of Chiba peninsula as it makes its way down to Tateyama. I could even see bits of Kanegawa that borders on Tokyo, that is just how clear it was.
Now, if only I could make my mind as clear as the skies. At times it seems like all the clouds flood my brain and heart. I try hard to stay focused on what really matters in this crazy world. There is so much nonsense we all have to go through that distracts us from what really matters. It is times like this that I am so thankful to have family that I can reason with, and for the Creator to watch over us all.
I have faith that tomorrow will be better. That tomorrow might be far off, but it might not. I prepare for the worst, and pray for the best. I know that the path I am on is the right one, and if it isn’t that I will be wise in my choices to keep on the path that I am suppose to be on.
Stare off into the boundless horizon. Follow those curves. Breathe deeply and let that brain fog clear away.
