It's a pretty awesome way to express ourselves.
Two years ago I did a rather painstaking drawing.
Last year I did a painting that was also painstaking but in a slightly different way.
This year I did something that was less of a time and pain burden. It's not very fancy or even very good but it's what I had in my mind. It brought me pleasure to create something (anything) since I hardly ever use my artistic talents.
(Yes I realized I F'd up the front wheel and the rear one looks too small)
Cycling is my favourite thing to do. When I ride my bike I experience great amounts of freedom. It's thrilling at times and scary at others. It can bring me to my exercise limits as well it proves what hard work can accomplish. However, no matter how fast or hard or easy going I'm cycling there is always something either on my mind or in the back of my mind.
Am I going too hard? Did I eat enough carbs? How many gels do I have on me? Is my BG going high? How low should I set my temporary basal rate? Should I bolus for breakfast or not? How long of a break am I taking mid way? Who can I call if I can't make it back home? Is this giant hill going to make my BG crash? or, am I too high to climb this giant hill? Where the hell do I put my pump?! etc etc etc...
It's always on my mind and it's there with everything I do.
