This month - I've crossed two MAJOR things off my list - I saw Elton John, and graduated from Harley Davidson's Rider's Edge Program.
SEEING ELTON JOHN IN CONCERT - CHECK!
I've been in love with Elton John since I was a little girl. Our seats - only about five rows back - were situate where I could see the keys of his piano go down as he played, and see the emotion in his face as he sang. He treated the audience to over 30 songs from his vast repertoire - ending the concert with a heartfelt and emotional version of "Your Song" - which, having heard that song as a young girl living in Ohio - brought tears to my eyes. It was a magical night.
LEARNING TO RIDE A HARLEY -
Last week I spent a grueling and empowering three days learning to ride a motorcycle.
Three days of reading, studying, riding, falling (ouch!), getting up and falling again,
wanting to quit - but NOT, and going back for more - I did it. I passed the written test, got my permit, attended the school, passed another written test, and most importantly passed the driving skills - Definitely taking me OUT of my comfort zone. But I am proud to say - out of a class of 13 - I was the only female, intimidating at first, but later empowering.
I've been riding for 20+ years behind my husband - and loving every minute of it. But now - on to my next adventure. And while I have no intention of giving up my seat behind him, I am looking forward to occasionally going solo.
Not now Gizmo..
