2001: “Tomas, you look like an action figure!”, an apt description how I looked at the time.
Matching Team Sobe jersey, shorts, and socks. Fingerless gloves. Wrap-around sunglasses. Helmet. Hydration pack with hose wrapped to the front. Cell-phone clipped to my chest. Leatherman in my pocket. Bicycle ready to ride anywhere.
Indeed, I probably did look like an action figure.
Today, I finally accept that I am truly an action-figure.
I seek nature, beauty, adventure, and truth.
