Those questions, well my version of them, drove me round the bend. The good 
news was I hadn't far to go. Grin. At which point I realized there was no 
way to answer those questions except after I rode the bike. I attempted, 
and largely failed, to enter into a peace, accepting that I couldn't do 
anything but spin my imaginary wheels, so I might as well trust my initial 
discernment (St. Ignatius says never to change a decision made in 
consolation when you're in desolation. Wise man.). Where I managed to be 
successful, I refocused my efforts to things I actually could do whenever 
the imaginary spinning began. Kept me (just) this side of sanity. Unless 
you ask anyone other than me. Grin.

With abandon,
