A Second Day in DeRidder, Louisiana

leave a comment »

I don’t know why. Maybe I did not want to travel on Halloween or any number of reasons. I did ride around town on my bicycle and talked with some of the locals, but I can tell you that I am very lonely this evening.

Still I search for myself. Who am I and how can I make a difference in this crazy environment that I ride through on a bicycle? The obstacles are many: cars, trucks, logging trucks, dogs, and weather to mention a few.

It’s just me and my shadow. Loneliness is natural when traveling alone. Somehow I have to overcome being lonely and focus on enjoying my journey.
