Riding motorcycles into storms, and other inefficient therapies

Wednesday 17 April 2013 - Filed under Life

Death ain’t exactly the most auspicious theme for a motorcycle trip, but it’s not like life’s really given me a choice. I should have been heading back to Missouri months ago, but no good. A blizzard dropped on me right before a flight. Then I was waiting for a better time for me financially. After a while, I just stopped planning another trip to see my sister, who had been weeks pregnant when I left her last, and is now about ready to pop.

Last night, the environmental engineer from Nashville I met in an Outback Steakhouse bar told me this trip sounded like I was on a vision quest. Not a bad way to put it.

For my whole adult life, I’ve developed a good technique for dealing with bad situations: I run away. It’s real effective. Stressful job? Quit it. Girlfriend upset? Leave her. Save money? Nope. Better to buy a motorcycle, pack up the bags, and hit the road.

I’m not joking about its effectiveness. There’s not many problems in life that can’t be solved, or escaped, I guess, by flipping the bird and heading out on the road, music as loud as you can get it and sunglasses on so truckers can’t tell you’re crying inside your helmet. And I’ve had plenty of shit in my life that I really did need to run away from. Clinically insane parents who mete out every type of abuse if you give them the chance. Bad partners who wanted too much while giving too little. Dickhead, manipulative, infurating jobs. (You know, jobs.) I’m proud that I’ve learned to run, to give myself time to think, to keep myself at least sort of with it—at least with it enough to not kill myself. Enough to keep going, even if I’m miserable.

But when does it stop? I’ve got a good woman now who loves me, the kind of person who responds to my white-knuckle whining by kissing me on the forehead and telling me to get on the bike and leave her for two weeks. I’ve got more heart-explodingly kind friends in New York who care about me and want me to keep it together than I know what to do with. I don’t have a job I love yet, but I’ve got options, and that’s a blessing of which I am aware. But sometimes I think I like to keep running, to keep dropping grenades into my life so I can turn off heart, bring the shields up, and curl up in the slag iron basinet of crisis. Every day that has more consequence, more cost. I’m 35 now; not young, not old. I’m getting a reputation for being flakey. The things I want now in life take patience, take the ability to eat a little shit now and then. And I know, even as I can’t really conceive it, that I’m going to die.

My sister’s husband fell asleep at the wheel eight months ago and that was that. He was on the way home from his shift as a waiter, which is how they kept their three kids fed and paid for improving the tiny farm they’d bought outside Kansas City. One stupid scrap of luck and Tyler was gone. He was a runner like me, ran from a normal, Midwestern life and definitely ran from creditors, except he didn’t run from his wife or his kids or the love they all shared. He’d spent a decade doing what he thought was right even when everyone around him told him otherwise.When my sister told me on the phone that the police had found his car, I fell over onto the floor of my apartment and felt everything break. It’s been months and I’m still not right. Tyler wasn’t supposed to die. He’d broken out of the bad patterns his parents had made with good intentions. He’d saved my sister from the life of insanity that our parents try to impose as our legacy every fucking day. And this piece of shit racket that is being a mortal being on a random, hostile planet took him away and it’s just not how it’s supposed to work.

Lt. Tasha Yar (Character) – Quotes

Tuesday 9 April 2013 - Filed under Life

Lt. Tasha Yar: [her final words] Death is that state in which one exists only in the memory of others. Which is why it is not an end. No goodbyes. Just good memories. Hailing frequencies closed, sir.

Capt. Picard: Au revoir, Natasha.
