Wednesday’s orange sunset lit up the sky, heightening a peaceful, easy feeling.

The muted rumble of the Harley’s exhausts punctuated the twilight.

A good evening to ride, a fitting end to another excellent day.

No din of politics to break the mood, no backdrop of evening news to depress the soul — just the backdrop of Mother Nature’s beauty to remind us that life — when correctly viewed — can and should be good.

I ride into the evening at peace with life, with God and with myself.
