do you like
to ride your bike?
feel like a gypsy?
all ways free?
so this morning i was at work, although due to my life being, for the most part, awesome and enjoyable, i wasn't stressed about being at work.
i was however preoccupied with the fact that most people at my age (almost twenty one) give up on there dreams around this time. theres a whole fu(k!ng society telling me that what i want is impossible, that i have no options except to buy into their pathetic games. but i know thats not true, and i am reminded by the fact that SO MANY people are talking the same things.
none of us want to 'grow up' and be a responsible full-time buried in debt keeping up the image life where everything is a consolation prize because there is no life. not one of us aspires to that crap, but we are surrounded by the so-called 'facts of life.'
we need to support those who have learned the truths we have learned, we need to encourage one another to stay strong and not deny ourselves. we need to affirm life as often as possible.
the gypsy idea that came to be this morning was of bicycle gypsies! i've heard mention of this once on another thread; its a very viable and excellent idea. i imagine 2-6 people, each on a bicycle. 1-3 bike trailers, to carry staples (rice, oatmeal, potatos, pasta, cooking pots, tarps, maybe one larger tent, candles, lanterns, and camping gear. also trade items!) that way the trailers could be switched off from person to person. whenever $$$ became nessecary or desireable, we could get temporary jobs and work a few days to replenish the coffers. dumpster diving would also help alot, maybe finding slightly old vegtables or fruits!
im picturing a time of total gypsy life and adventure. we could talk to kids at shows and encourage them, visit organic farms and help people.
now that winter is (supposed) to be here, i was kinda expecting to stay put for a good few months. but this is really got me thinkin' and i want to sound it across the forum to see what replies i can get. if your really dig the idea and could see yourself doing it, plz try to write a msg, as well as posting on the boards. i love riding my bike, i deffinitly want this to happen, if not very very soon then in the spring most surely.
what do you think? would you want to be a bicycle gypsy? what would you think if you say four or five people with gear and colorful banner roll into town and start playing drums? i think it would be amazing-
