Postpartum depression

I finally sold an old bike of mine over the weekend. I had been trying to sell it — off and on, with a hiatus during the winter — for almost a year.

I found a good buyer that is going to fix it up and ride it, not part it out on eBay like a tired horse sold for dog food.

I was relieved to finally move the thing, but at the same time a little nostalgic about all the years I had spent on it. Surprisingly, I had trouble sleeping last night, laying awake and thinking about working on it and the trips I had taken on it. The sensation took me totally by surprise — me the cynic waxing lovelorn over a piece of machinery. I’ve never been one to do that corny comparison of women and motorcycles, or to give my bikes nicknames. Nevertheless, there is some sort of pang there for an inanimate object, a pang that probably won’t go away for a long time.
