Metaphysics on a Bike
While riding home the other night, decompressing on the curves and bumps of the road, my mind was directed to my First Law by the juxtaposition of the dusk's coolness and the heat of the tarmac, the interplay of sunlight filtering through the tree canopies on the road and the patterns of light and dark confounding judgment of distances, and my shadow riding beside me.

The contrasts surrounding me, following me and riding with me brought to mind the yin and yang, the positives and the negatives in constant flux and transition. They are all complements. And it is the basis of all things. Even my love of the ride.

This was the impetus of the post on my First Law.
