Rest Easy, Rider. Your Chautauqua rolls on.

I spent many a day/night, in high school and then as a philosophy major in college, clutching the seminal ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’ as both amulet and badge. Pirsig, ever the explorer on the spiritual Chautauqua that was both his writing and his life, said in reference to the death of his son that our lives are essentially patterns of organic energy. As such, they would reappear in new form. If so, let us all hope that when our own patterns re-form, we will come back with some bit of the two traits best associated with Pirsig…’Quality & Care.’
Rest Easy, Rider.
Your Chautauqua rolls on.
