_This too shall pass!_ My wise grandmother also used to say that, but she was referring to proper hardships such as the Great Depression, various widespread outbreaks and colicky babies. I too am with you in needing this article. I chuckled more than a few times reading it. Uncle Dave, you are a talented fella. I've also been mountain biking for about 30 years and took nearly 2 months off this fall because I "was done." I just had no desire to ride a bike. I felt guilty about it too, and I'm not even on the wretched social media! Now that it's snowing, that slump is letting up but at the same time continuing and I'm thinking more about snowboarding and snowmobiles. And that's okay. In fact, it's good. No, it's great. Seasons change, and so do we. My bikes will be still there, for future days and a future self.
